12 ounce box of Rotini Pasta.
Rotini are short, corkscrew-shaped pasta originating from Southern Italy. The name translates from Italian to “small wheels”. It is a very similar shape to fusilli but rotini is extruded into a twisted shape versus fusilli which is made of strands of pasta twisted into little spring-like shapes.
This shape is popular with children but is also a useful shape as its twists can capture sauces well. Rotini is recommended to be paired with most sauces, including tomato sauces, oil-based sauces, or cream sauces. It also works well in pasta salads. It also holds meat and cheese well and can work well in a baked pasta dish.
Al dente in 5 minutes.
Carefully crafted using bronze dies and air-dried to perfection in wooden cellars, our pasta’s pure taste is perfected by our passion for creating authentic Creole-Italian products, from right here in Louisiana.
