The Fusilli can be long or short. The name comes from the simple tool used to give the characteristic spiral shape: an iron for up her knitting. We we have replaced with a bamboo skewer.
The recipe is very simple. The only difficulty is the preparation of fusilli.
It starts from a mixture of flour double zero and durum wheat flour and water. Before working a soft dough with the double zero. Then we make it more consistent and dry with wheat flour.

Prepared the dough, we let it sit for almost an hour. Later, always helping us with the whole wheat flour, roll it up the sheets to the desired thickness. Arrotoliamo the sheets with a well-sharpened knife cut strips about an inch wide. Thus, arrotoliamo around the spedino and have the pasta gently in a pan. Will have to dry until we can handle them without losing its shape.
Who has a convection oven with the program for drying is an advantage.
Preparation time can not be estimated.
