There are hundreds of pasta shapes, each with their own purpose. Short pasta, longpasta, pasta that can be stuffed, pasta for soups - the uses for pasta are endless! There are some shapes and sizes that are better suited for holding sauces in their ridges, while others are better for baked dishes.
Fusilli is a spiral or corkscrew shaped pasta. Because of its twists, it has grooves that are good for holding onto sauce. Fusilli was originally developed in Southern Italy by rolling and setting fresh spaghetti around thin rods to dry. This shape is traditionally formed by rolling strips of pasta over a rod to create the twisted shape.
Cooking with Fusilli
Fusilli works well with any sauce, added to soups, or turned into a salad, and this shape also bakes well in a casserole.
Cook for 10-12 minutes until al dente. Drain straight away.
