The word fusilli comes from the Italian word for spindle, an apt description for this twisted shape. Whole wheat pastas go well with yellow tomato sauce and a piquant cheese.
The selected semolina wheat used in this pasta is strictly of Italian origin and of the best quality, including the Senatore Cappelli variety which is renowned for cooking to al-dente. It also gives the pasta a golden color. Bronze cut pasta molds create a rough and porous texture much like homemade pasta. The low temperature drying method known as cirillo preserves the distinct texture and aroma.
