Fusilli are a corkscrew shaped pasta very familiar to pasta lovers. Fusilloni are a bit bigger than the more commonly used fusilli. Both are a perfect foil for most tomato-based sauces, allowing them to accumulate within the twists of the corkscrew. The Fusilloni by Sapori Antichi are made even more flavorful and fun by the use of many colors. These colors are not the result of any food dyes, but of all natural ingredients. The five basic colors are produced using tomatoes, beets, spinach, turmeric, and squid ink (nero di sepia).
Marco Zanier founded Sapori Antichi in 1996 in the town of Socchieve in the Carnic Alps, not far from the Adriatic Sea. This location has blessed his establishment with its three main ingredients of air, water, and sun. Only select durum wheat semolina is used. Sapori Antichi maintains a small-scale production to allow everything to be done by hand and quality controlled.
Each package of Multicolor Fusilloni contains 17.6 ounces or 500g.
