Fusilli come from Campania and belong to the short, straight cut family of pasta.
In the past, Fusilli were made by hand according to a method that was passed down from one generation to the next. 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.
This pasta is particularly good with meat and fish based sauces or with condiments made with ricotta. It is also perfect with vegetable sauces too that are prepared with a tomato sauce with peppers, aubergines, olives and capers.
Available in 500g or 3 Kg packs.
The classic Italian kitchen staple now comes in an all-new version to enjoy: 7-Grain Spaghetti is a unique product, full of flavour and naturally packed with fibre, protein and phosphorus.
Thanks to its versatility, it can be complemented with any sauce or ingredient – from meat and fish to vegetables and cheeses – but it is also excellent just as a plain pasta with a simple drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and a dash of parmesan cheese.
Available in 400g packets.
