Fusilli (pasta twists) belong to the very short straight cut pasta format and they are a speciality of the Campania region, in Southern Italy. They have a spiral shape with a 10 mm diameter,a 41 mm average length, and a thickness between 1,35 and 1,48 mm.
In ancient times Fusilli were hand made according to a method handed down 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 "fuso", spindle, the rod the spinners used to work with.
Very tasty with ragù napoletanaand ricotta sauces. Excellent also with tomato vegetable sauces with peppers, aubergins, olives and capers.
Eau-de-vie Moscato and Chardonnay marks. Roner's "La Morbida" is a new eau-de-vie meant to satisfy the most demanding palates through its ability to convince with its softness and fragrance.
It is produced using white grape Must, acetified and aged in oak barrels to get its typical amber colour. Its most striking feature is that it does not alter the colour of dishes but it adds a fruity and mildly acid aroma and flavour (excellent to replace wine vinegar).
