The Fusilli Tricolore are one of De Cecco’s tricolour specialities, enriched with the taste of selected ingredients, such as the double tomato concentrate and the tender leaf spinach, they were especially created to add a touch of fantasy to you recipes. Fusilli (twists) belong to the very short straight cut pasta family they originate from Campania, a region in South Italy. They have a spring shape, with a 10 mm diameter, they are about 41 mm long and their thickness varies between 1.35 and 1.48 mm. In ancient times Fusilli were hand made according to a method handed down from 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 from “fuso”, spindle, the rod the spinners used to work with.Very tasty with ragù napoletana and ricotta sauces. Excellent also with tomato vegetable sauces with peppers, aubergins, olives and capers.
