- n. pasta spirals
(Soundbite of laughter) BLOCK: There are a whole bunch of pastas in the book whose names come from industrial words, industrial shapes - screws, eliche; spindles, fusilli; crank shaft - I didn't know that one - gumiti (ph).
In fact, by so doing you may impress your date even more than by an accurate pronunciation of “vongoline di aranciata trapanette a due eliche.”
