This pasta shape is a speciality from Campania whose origins are no longer remembered; Garofalo Fusilli Lunghi have the unmistakable character of carefully processed and bronze-drawn pasta.
Their classic spiral shape lets sauces creep between the curves.
They are excellent with everyday recipes, as well as more daring experiments.
Bronze drawn, rough surface, resistant and always al dente.
Thoughts and inspirations
In ancient times the fusilli were prepared by hand according to a precise technique. The mixture of durum wheat semolina and water was rolled around chestnut twigs to take on the particular spiral shape. The twigs were then removed and the pasta was left to dry in the air. The traditional Neapolitan recipe that goes perfectly with this speciality is Fusilli lunghi con la ricotta (with ricotta cheese).
Ingredients: Durum wheat semolina and water.
Cooking Time: 14 minutes
