Festive Fusilli

These noodles remind me of the bouncy coils that hang from curled ribbon bows. I made this pasta shape by rolling out long, skinny ropes of dough and then carefully wrapping each one around a bamboo skewer. After gently sliding the wrapped dough off the tool, it keeps its spiral shape. Since they are hand-wrapped around the skewer, instead of being rolled between the table and the skewer, the noodles have a thicker, rounder profile than their more stretched out, flattened cousins - fusilli calabrese. There's something cheerful and light-hearted about these curly fusilli - I might even try dangling a couple of these dried noodles around my next gift-wrapped package!
