What kind of pasta is shaped like a corkscrew?
– Fusilli
– Capellini
– Pappardelle
– Farfalle

Answer: Fusilli are a variety of pasta that are formed into the shape of a corkscrew. The word fusilli presumably comes from fuso (“spindle”), as traditionally it is “spun” by pressing and rolling a small rod over the thin strips of pasta to wind them around it in a corkscrew shape. Fusilli may be solid or hollow. Alternatively, capellini is a very thin variety of pasta. Like spaghetti, capellini is rod-shaped, in the form of long strands. Pappardelle are large, very broad, flat pasta noodles, similar to wide fettuccine. Farfalle are a type of pasta commonly known as bow-tie pasta.
