Fusilli (pasta twists) belong to the very short straight cut pasta format and they are a speciality of the Campania region, in Southern Italy. They have a spiral shape with a 10 mm diameter,a 41 mm average length, and a thickness between 1,35 and 1,48 mm.
In ancient times Fusilli were hand made according to a method handed down mother to daughter, which consisted in twisting a "spaghetto" long thread of pasta, around on a knitting needle with a swift movement of a clever hand. This kind of ability reminded the movement of the spinning machine. In fact the word "fusillo" comes "fuso", spindle, the rod the spinners used to work with.
Very tasty with ragù napoletanaand ricotta sauces. Excellent also with tomato vegetable sauces with peppers, aubergins, olives and capers.
