Cavatappi (corkscrews) belong to the family of dried, whimsical shaped pasta with their tubular, curled or corkscrew shape.
The double-ended opening and the distinctive ridges mean that this pasta is perfect with less dense, more liquid sauces, all of which are captured inside it.
Cavatappi (corkscrews) are particularly suited for preparing plates of pasta served with dense, colourful sauces of meat or fish, with green leaf vegetables or vegetables, or strong cheeses.
Try them when preparing delicious, colourful pasta salads.

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.
