The Traditional Recipes
Fusilli with Meat Sauce
In the old days fusilli, a corkscrew-shaped spaghetti, was always made by hand. Like its ancestor, the modern machine-made version is especially good with a ragù (meat sauce), which gets trapped in the curves of the pasta.
SERVES 6 AS A FIRST COURSE OR 4 AS A MAIN COURSE
- 1 Bolognese Meat Sauce
- 1 pound fusilli or other dried pasta (450g) or 3/4 pound dried tagliolini or tagliatelle (egg pasta) (330g)
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened (30g)
- 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (40g) plus extra to pass at the table freshly ground pepper
Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
Gently heat the Bolognese Meat Sauce in a large skillet. Salt the boiling water and cook the fusilli for about 8 minutes (about 2 minutes for egg pasta) or until al dente. Drain the fusilli and add it to the sauce along with the softened butter and cheese. Toss to combine well, taste, and season with salt and pepper.
Serve hot and pass around a small bowl of Parmesan cheese.
