Fusilli Pasta with Turmeric
Our handmade, artisanal pasta in traditional shapes and sizes is bronze die cut, dried at low temperatures and made from only local wheat in Southern Italy between Puglia & Basilicata.
Fusilli means 'little spindles' but this tightly curled type of pasta is often referred to as 'corkscrew pasta'.
These Fusilli are made with turmeric giving them a vibrant colour and mild aromatic flavour.
Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.
These are a great choice for pasta salads and casseroles, or for serving with hearty, thick creamy or vegetable sauces.
Cooking time: 7 minutes.
Why we love Pasta Raguso:

The Raguso family have been farmers for generations, sowing and cultivating wheat on their land in Puglia and Basilicata, two areas particularly suited for the best Italian wheat.
Their farm is modern and organized with production cycles with low environmental impact: Each process is carefully controlled: sowing, cultivation, harvesting, storage, grinding, production and packaging of pasta. The family use artisanal methods processing and drying the pasta in a natural way to protect its organoleptic properties.
The supply chain is short and “zero km”, the production waste of wheat is reused as feed (zero pesticides), and packaging is produced from recyclable paper.
They use the stables - where the animals that feed in fallow fields live - to produce biomass. Our pellets are self-produced, starting from pruning residues, ensuring a functional reuse of wood waste. Our goal for 2022 is to accurately quantify the carbon footprint of each single pack of pasta, trying more and more to aim for zero.
