Fusilli gigante, or giant fusilli is probably one of the largest fusilli you will ever eat. Fusilli is a corkscrew shaped pasta, great for soaking up sauces. Imagine serving this giant pasta at your next dinner party, or to start a conversation at the dinner table. This pasta is made from 100% semolina flour and water. The pasta is extruded through authentic brass dies, after which it is dried for a period of 24 to 36 hours. This longer drying period results in a superior quality and texture. The pasta is hand stirred to ensure even drying. All dry pasta is carefully inspected to ensure that only the best quality product makes it to your plate. COOKING INSTRUCTIONS: Bring 4-5 quarts of salted water to a boil. Gently add pasta and stir for 1 minute. Lightly boil for 14 -16 minutes or until “al dente”. Drain and serve with your favorite homemade sauce.
Our Artisanal Pastas In A Nutshell
Everybody loves pasta! But believe it or not, it’s not all the same. We specially chose our artisanal pasta supplier from a New Jersey-based, family owned business with a passion for pasta. For over 45 years, these specialty pasta makers have been carefully handcrafting their premium pastas using 100% semolina flour in every small batch.
Conventional Pastas vs. Artisanal Pastas
The last box of conventional pasta (or dry pasta) you picked off your pantry probably held shiny, golden colored noodles that were smooth in texture. When cooking pasta dishes, you actually want the opposite! Artisanal pastas are extruded through a bronze die and made with a super-coarse grind of durum wheat, which allows the pasta to dry more slowly and at a lower temperature than conventional pastas. This process makes artisanal pastas chalkier in color and rougher in texture which results in a richer-tasting, chewier-textured pasta that easily clings to sauces of all sorts. Bon appetit!
Ratings & Reviews
Artisanal pasta tastes much better than ordinary pasta. It's quality is evident. I used to buy angel hair nests from a local farmers market, but they don't carry them anymore. I like spiral pasta, and tried these because I wanted to see how big they actually are. They're pretty big, and as such, require at least twice as long to cook as "regular" pasta. They're delicious and make a substantial base for any pasta meal.Melanie, Orchard Park, NY
The Best! Stays Al' Dente the next day! This pasta holds the sauce not only better than the boxed dry pasta in stores, but is much better than the refrigerated "fresh" pasta. Wonderful product, packaged well, and delicious :)Madaleine, CHICAGO, IL
Couldn't find the fusilli giganti anywhere else, so I love it!Sarah, Franklin, IN
I was happy with my order as always, but I was a little disappointed not receiving a free surprise sample of something. I always have looked forward to seeing what goodie you put in my box. Perhaps you recently stopped doing that.Lesli, Franklin, TN
