Fusilli Pasta was first introduced in the heart of Italy, when each pasta shape was made by hand according to method that would be passed down from one family member to another. The process involved rapidly twisting spaghetti strands around a knitting needle. This is where the term ‘fusillo’ comes from ‘fuso’ which means (“spindle”), by pressing and rolling strips of pasta, then spinning them into a corkscrew shape.
