Organic wholewheat fusilli pasta made by an Italian co-op using their own durum wheat. Slow-dried for a deep, nutty flavour, and shaped with traditional bronze dies for a rougher surface that holds onto sauces and seasoning. Fusilli’s spiral shape is great for trapping thin sauces, or standing up to chunky ones.

It bakes well in casseroles, as in this leek and goat's cheese pasta bake.

Cooking

Wholewheat fussili takes only 10-12 mins to boil. Eat with spinach and Parmesan for a quick, healthy vegetarian dinner, or with black kale and lamb's liver for a bolder dish. It also bakes well in casseroles topped with plenty of golden, bubbling cheese.

Storage

Whole-wheat pasta contains natural oils that mean it’ll go bad faster than white pasta, so keep it somewhere cool and dry and eat it within a few months.

About Girolomoni

This Italian cooperative has an inspiring history. Its founder, Gino Girolomoni, was mayor of the small town of Isola del Piano in the 1970s. He started the cooperative to ensure the livelihoods of the farmers who were struggling to survive growing durum wheat on the town’s hilly, inhospitable fields. Their wheat supplies a collectively owned factory, producing this excellent pasta. We’re importing it from Italy directly to get a better price for our customers.

Gino Girolomoni was a farmer himself, and a passionate early supporter of the organic movement. The courses and seminars that he organised in Isola del Piano drew intellectuals and experts from all over the country. Today Girolomoni is considered one of the fathers of organic farming in Italy.

In 2013, Guy was honoured with the Girolomoni cooperative’s annual ‘Farmers’ Friend’ award. Read more on the blog.
