Delverde Fusilli Bronzo No. 29
Fusilli is a variety of pasta that have corkscrew or helical shapes. The word fusilli presumably comes from fuso which means “spindle”. It refers to it being traditionally “spun” by pressing and rolling a small rod over the thin strips of pasta to wind them around it in a corkscrew shape.
Tasting Notes from the Curator
Durum wheat semolina pasta in small bow tie or butterfly shapes, carefully selected from the best grains mainly from Italy and all over the world. Delverde Fusilli pasta is bronze drawn, slow dried at low temperatures enriched with pure spring water, according to the Delverde traditional recipe.
Delverde Fusilli pasta is ideally cooked in salted boiling water for approximately 9 mins. The best thing about bronze cut pasta is that it creates a texture in the pasta’s surface that allows sauce to stick more. Fusilli is often served with thicker sauces like meat sauces and heavy cream sauces, since the grooves in the pasta trap sauce.
