There are so many types of pasta that it is often difficult to choose… Fusilli is one of those types that I love to prepare. I enjoy how the sauce or vegetables mix in between the “helical” pasta. Moreover, this is a type of pasta that I mix in advance, season and put on the table in a large serving dish. We mix the raw egg at the table. Enjoy!
