Pasta salad is a popular, easy dish to bring to family gatherings, picnics and special occasions. The hallmark pasta widely used for pasta salads is the fusilli noodle that was developed in southern Italy.
The fusilli cut is named after the word “fuso” which translates to “spindle.” The corkscrew-shaped pasta is great at holding a variety of sauces from light, oil-based sauces to the thicker tomato sauce. This pasta isn’t only used for pasta salads. It also is terrific for baked dishes.
