Pasta, Rotini, Whole Wheat

(Pasta, Rotini, Whole Wheat)  Rotini is a type of helix- or corkscrew-shaped pasta. The name derives from the Italian for twists. It is related to fusilli, but has a tighter helix, i.e. with a smaller pitch. It should not be confused with rotelle ("wagon wheel" pasta). Rotini originated from Northern Italy and the tight twists help them retain a wide variety of sauces better. They are often used in pasta salads with pesto or tomato-based sauces.  We always purchase 100% whole wheat or other whole grain pasta. Most major supermarkets, and all health food stores sell 100% whole wheat pasta in various shapes and sizes to suit any desired recipe.  The one in this photo contains only 100%  whole durum wheat and water, with no other ingredients. See the nutritional chart below.
