About

Fusilli pasta is a popular Italian pasta shape which has been widely exported to much of the world. It is among the most common of the more unusually shaped pastas, since fusilli is highly versatile in the kitchen.

It can be eaten plain as a pasta dish, but it can also be baked into casseroles, used in pasta salad, and added to soups. Most markets carry fusilli, and the pasta can also be made at home. A pasta machine will greatly assist cooks who want to try their hand at making fusilli at home.

The best fusilli pasta is made with hard durum wheat. This wheat will be dense and chewy when cooked al dente, and it will also help the pasta hold its shape if it is cooked longer. 

Fusilli pasta made from durum wheat can be used in dishes which need to be reheated, as the pasta will not fall apart as readily as pasta made from soft wheat. At home, fusilli can be made from either hard or soft wheat, and eaten fresh or dried, depending on personal taste.
