Dececco Pasta Fusilli - 1 Lb.
Fusilli belong to the very short straight pasta cuts; they are a speciality of the Campania region. They have a spiral shape; they are 1.614 in. long, between 0.053 in. – 0.058 in. thick, with a 0.393 in. diameter.
Long ago, Fusilli were made with a traditional method, passed on from mother to daughter, by twisting with a swift and confident movement of the hands, a spaghetto around a knitting needle.
This movement resembled the one of a spinning machine.
The word fusillo, as a matter of fact, comes from fuso, spindle or rod typical of knitting.
They are expecially tasty with ragu (for example napoletana) and ricotta sauces.
They also taste excellent with tomato sauces, adding peppers, eggplant, olives and capers.
