Antiche Fusilli Di Gragnano

Corkscrew Pasta

This par¬≠tic¬≠u¬≠lar Fusil¬≠li is extrud¬≠ed and rolled through the bronze dies of Pas¬≠ti¬≠fi¬≠cio Antiche Tradizioni di Grag¬≠nano in the small town of Grag¬≠nano. Wide¬≠ly cel¬≠e¬≠brat¬≠ed as the birth¬≠place of dried pas¬≠ta, Grag¬≠nano pro¬≠duces the finest pas¬≠tas in the world, with a firmer, al dente bite and a sig¬≠na¬≠ture rough¬≠ness that mar¬≠velous¬≠ly clings to sauces of any kind.


Orig¬≠i¬≠nat¬≠ing in South¬≠ern Italy, fusil¬≠li is made by rolling fresh spaghet¬≠ti around a small rod before dry¬≠ing, cre¬≠at¬≠ing a quirky shape that resem¬≠bles a small spring or corkscrew. Antiche‚Äôs Fusil¬≠li di Grag¬≠nano is made with 100% durum wheat semoli¬≠na and spring water sourced from Grag¬≠nano. The bronze die extru¬≠sion and slow dry¬≠ing process unique to pas¬≠tas di grag¬≠nano pro¬≠duces a bet¬≠ter tast¬≠ing, firm tooth¬≠i¬≠ness with a sig¬≠na¬≠ture rough¬≠ness that cre¬≠ates an exquis¬≠ite base for any pas¬≠ta recipe.


Al dente fusil¬≠li, or pas¬≠ta that is firm to the tooth with¬≠out being soft, takes an aver¬≠age of 10 min¬≠utes to cook. Because of its twist¬≠ed shape, fusil¬≠li is best served over light smooth sauces such as pesto and cream-based sauces that can cling to the spi¬≠ral grooves of the pas¬≠ta. If you‚Äôre look¬≠ing for a twist to the stan¬≠dard sauces, why not whip up a sim¬≠ple and healthy pas¬≠ta sal¬≠ad? Toss these in with sum¬≠mer veg¬≠eta¬≠bles, slices of Fat¬≠to¬≠rie Garo¬≠fa¬≠lo Moz¬≠zarel¬≠la Bufala and vinai¬≠grette dress¬≠ing for a light, hearty dinner!

The Birth¬≠place of Dried Pasta

Just south of Naples lies a hill¬≠top town known for pro¬≠duc¬≠ing the best dried pas¬≠ta in the world. Lov¬≠ing¬≠ly referred by the locals as Oro di Grag¬≠nano‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČthe gold of Grag¬≠nano‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČthis lit¬≠tle town is cel¬≠e¬≠brat¬≠ed for its air-dried, bronze-extrud¬≠ed pasta.

Rec¬≠og¬≠nized by the Euro¬≠pean Union as a PGI prod¬≠uct (‚ÄúPro¬≠tect¬≠ed Geo¬≠graph¬≠i¬≠cal Indi¬≠ca¬≠tion‚ÄĚ), Pas¬≠ta di Grag¬≠nano ensures a strict stan¬≠dard of qual¬≠i¬≠ty. Made with only high qual¬≠i¬≠ty durum wheat, fresh spring water sourced from the near¬≠by Mount Lat¬≠tari and extrud¬≠ed through a bronze dye, pas¬≠tas made in Grag¬≠nano pro¬≠duce an amaz¬≠ing¬≠ly al-dente bite and a sig¬≠na¬≠ture rough¬≠ness that clings beau¬≠ti¬≠ful¬≠ly to any pas¬≠ta sauces. Today, only 16 pas¬≠ta pro¬≠duc¬≠ers are rec¬≠og¬≠nized for true Pas¬≠ta di Grag¬≠nano, one of which is Antiche Tradizioni di Gragnano.
