Fusilli Lunghi Bucati are originally from Campania and have a simple spiral shape.
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 typical tool used by spinners for their work.
Fusilli Lunghi Bucati are traditionally served with Neapolitan or "guardaporta" (doorman) ragù and the Neapolitan ragù known as "alla genovese" (Genoa style). Generally, this pasta is best with parmesan or pecorino (sheep's cheese) or with tomato and vegetable based sauces with aubergines and peppers.

Gnocchi are originally from Campania and were created from the imagination of the pasta-makers who, while remaining true to the tradition of semolina pasta, took their inspiration from the classic potato gnocchi.
Gnocchi have a distinctive concave, ribbed shape and are excellent for capturing and bringing out the best in denser sauces, such as Bolognese sauce.
The most popular condiment for Gnocchi is tomato: from a simple tomato and basil sauce to the heartiest meat sauces, but they are also very good served with pesto.
