Rotini means "twists" and are two inch lengths of thick screw-like pasta from Northern Italy. The shape was inspired by children since it is fun-to-eat and pairs well with a wide variety of sauces. The twists allow Rotini to hold more sauce and they may be enjoyed with your favourite pasta salad dishes or paired with tasty tomato-based sauces.

Whole Grain pasta is best paired with tomato or cream sauces. Pesto sauces also go well with whole grain pasta. Meat and game sauces pair well too. Green vegetables in general taste very good with whole gain pasta. Pine nuts, walnuts, chestnuts, pistachios and dried fruit such as raisins and apples pair very well with this whole grain pasta. Cheese sauces made with Parmigiano, Grana, Asiago, Pecornio, Ricotta, provolone or Fontina cheese are good with whole grain pasta in terms of flavour profiles.
