Sanmarti, a famous pasta company that operates out of Catalonia prides itself on quality pastas available for everyone around the world. Sanmarti’s Espiral, also known as fusilli, is a beloved pasta variant sought-after around the world. But what makes this pasta so great?
Fusilli’s spiral shape actually lends it an advantage over other pastas. While it may not be the best choice for a heavily sauced pasta dish, like bolognese, its geometry is the perfect receptacle for oil based pasta dishes. Next time you whip up a batch of pesto, or quickly produce a soffritto for your aglio o olio, try using fusilli. The oil will stick to the pastas many levels and hold the flavor in each piece. A must have for any serious pasta lover, fusilli is great in cold pasta salads, too. Not only does it taste great, but there is something beautiful and pleasant in the way it looks, too.
Store dry, uncooked pasta in a cool, dry pantry for up to one year. Preserve freshness by storing dry pasta in an air-tight box or container. Store plain (no sauce or other ingredients) cooked pasta in a container or plastic sealable bag in the refrigerator for up to five days and up to three months in the freezer.
