Fusilli is a spiral / corkscrew shaped dried pasta. It has grooves in it that is good at capturing and holding onto sauce.
The “col buco” versions have hollow insides.
Good for pasta salads; cook to al dente.
Fusilli pasta were originally developed in Southern Italy by rolling fresh spaghetti around a thin rod and letting it dry.
The “fusillo” shape was then developed as a pasta shape in its own right.
