A larger, chunkier version of the classic Fusilli from the Campania tradition which were made by hand in the past according to a method that was passed down from "mother to daughter". You had to rapidly twist a strand of spaghetti around a knitting needle with a skilled hand. The ability required to perform this procedure is reminiscent of that of spinners and as a matter of fact, the term "fusillo" comes from "fuso" (spindle) which was the tool used by spinners.
Fusilli Giganti are ideal for dishes with a strong, decisive taste or for recipes that need to be tossed in a frying pan.

From the beginning of the twentieth century, many forms of pasta have been inspired by mechanics and the automotive industry, such as Radiatori (radiators) or Lancette (clock hands).
Rotelle (cog wheels) are also a result of this tradition and have a round shape with spokes joined to a ridged rim.
Enjoy them served with tomato sauce with or without meat, or alternatively this pasta is perfect in broth and minestrone soups.
Try them when preparing delicious, colourful pasta salads.
