Organic Fusilli Pasta - 3 Pack


Unit price

Climber and cook Karen Shinto came up with this 15-minute dinner. Fusilli works great here, because its deep ridges trap the tomato sauce and the garlicky anchovy oil, loading each piece with flavor.


Putting It All Together

  1. Bring a medium pot of well-salted water to a boil. Add fusilli and cook until just tender, 10-12 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat sauce till simmering.
  3. Drain pasta and pour into a serving bowl. Mix in tomato sauce. Stir in anchovies, breaking them up a little as you add them, and pouring in as much of the garlicky oil from the tin as you like.
  4. With a vegetable peeler, shave thin slices of cheese right onto the hot pasta.  Add a few pinches of chile flakes if you like. Top with basil leaves, tearing them into bite-size pieces to release their wonderful fresh smell.
