Cinnamon-Coated Fusilli

Serves: 8
Total Calories: 11


8 gourmet fusilli pasta
oil for frying
2 tablespoons plus 1/2 teaspoon* sugar and cinnamon


Line a baking sheet with a double layer of paper towels. Set aside.

If the pasta is U-shaped, break each one into two equal pieces. Each piece should be about 9 inches in length. Pour enough oil in a medium fry pan to come 1 inch up the side of the pan. Place the pan over medium-high heat for at least 2 minutes or until the oil registers 350°F. Place four pieces of pasta in the oil, and fry for 1 to 2 minutes or just until they begin to brown. (The fusilli will continue to brown after they are removed from the oil.) Using tongs, transfer the fusilli to the prepared pan and immediately sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Allow the fusilli to cool. Store the Cinnamon-Coated Fusilli in an airtight container.

*To make cinnamon-sugar, thoroughly combine 2 tablespoons granulated sugar with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.
