This Fusilloni (the larger version of fusilli) pasta is made from matt, a strong and rich variety of durum wheat. When Matt pasta cooks, it releases a summery bouquet of hay, desiccated coconut and stretched curd. Its ancient taste reminds of stone cooked bread, butter and bamboo shoots.
This cut of pasta works best with both creamy and textured sauces. We like this the most with a Sunday Meat Sauce.
About the Producer:
In 1908 Valentino Felicetti founded Felicetti Pasta Company near the Dolomites in Northern Italy. This was a bold, visionary move as this was an area of Italy that ate little pasta preferring instead risotto and polenta. Today, the Felicetti Company is still family-run and continues to manage the company in the same time honored traditions as previous generations. They are proud to hold the standing as the world’s largest producer of 100% Organic Pasta. Felicetti is a world leader in organic pasta, and is focused on preserving our natural resources, promoting biodiversity, respecting the ecosystem and safeguarding the environment.
