Fusili con Bucotti Pasta

Fusilli con Bucotti pasta


Other Names:
Fusilli Avellinesi, see bottom photo
Throughout Italy
Made with:
Manufactured is made with water and durum wheat. The flat variety is made by rolling a ribbon of pasta around a stick
When it comes to the curly or twisted varieties of pasta which come in these corkscrew shapes things get particularly complicated they all seem to come somewhere close to Spirali, meaning spiral shaped. On the package both from Italy, THEY both had exactly the same name but definitely not the same shape. I think that is because they are basically from different regions in Italy. Fusilli should be corkscrew shaped not propeller-shaped. So the top photo is an authentic version.

I don't have many canapes here. The ones I share are super quick, very tasty and most of all tasty. Your guests will appreciate the effort.

A Quick Note

I wanted to take a minute to say that I do try and weigh as many of the ingredients as I can. I think it helps make recipe results more consistent. Of course professional bakers even measure liquids by weight. I don't mind pulling out my little digital scale when I need to.
