De Cecco Fusilli
Advantages: Yummy; Brill quality; Tastes and feels nice to eat
The De Cecco range of pasta has been on special offer in Tesco and because I'm not mad keen on mega cheap pasta I thought I'd give it a try while you could still buy 2 packs for £2.00, the normal price is £1.49 a pack so that's a decent saving I think.
It's made of durum wheat semolina and this Fusilli is a wicked spiral shape and is like a spring not just curled round on itself like the cheap Fusilli brands. Before it's cooked it's a lovely yellow colour and looks proper nice and after you've cooked the pasta it stays the same sort of colour and I think it looks like brill quality pasta.
I cooked it in boiling water for about 10 mins and the Fusilli comes out with a nice bite to it but is still nice and soft to eat. The spirals pick the sauce up good and I think this pasta is specially nice with a chunky tomato pasta sauce because the chunks will get caught in the spirals so you get a delish texture and taste.
I've had it plain as well with just a bit of salt on the pasta and it's delish like that too. The taste of pasta is hard to describe but this is deffo a good one, it hasn't got a watery flavour or anything and tastes lovely and wheaty. I like the flavour it because it's strong but deffo doesn't overpower any sauce you add to the pasta, we'd run out of spaghetti the other night so I used this with the Bolognese for a change and it was yummy. The spiral pasta collected the mince and sauce and it wasn't such an effort to eat as spaghetti actually! lol
The Fusilli has got a wicked texture because when you drain the water off it doesn't stick together and is nice and moist but without feeling soggy or anything.
Recommended... try it while it's still on offer with one of the other De Cecco pastas because it's delish and well worth the extra money compared to Tesco own twirly pasta I reckon!!!
