Fusilli is a spiral or corkscrew shaped pasta. This shape is traditionally formed by rolling strips of pasta over a rod to create the twisted shape. Fusilli works well with any sauce, added to soups, or turned into a salad.

Nowadays, most products sold as pasta are made from common wheat. However, similar noodles can be made from other grains, such as rice, barley or buckwheat.
Some types of pasta are refined during processing, stripping the wheat kernel of the bran and germ, removing many of the nutrients.
Sometimes refined pasta is enriched, meaning it has some nutrients, such as B vitamins and iron, added back in.
