Fusilli pasta made with ancient Perciasacchi wheat flour
The pasta used for the fusilli is made from Durum wheat. It is a tricky wheat to work with compared to other varieties because it requires hot water (190°F hot) to release the gluten and integrate the wheat and liquid to form a smooth pasta. Once the pasta is formed into sheets and allowed to cool, it's rolled to a thickness of three-eighths-of-an-inch and then cut into thin ribbons.
This Artisan Pasta of Perciasacchi flour, was born in Sicily for centuries engaged in the cultivation of durum wheat. It is here that thanks to the Mediterranean climate, the natural suitability of the soil and the warm Sicilian sun, excellent ancient durum grains are still produced today, excellent for making pasta.
