Fairway Gigli & Zucchini Pasta

Fairway pastas help you make a healthy, hearty meal fast. Our dried pastas are the real deal; artisanal pastas from Puglia, the boot heel of Italy. Pasta is the heart and soul of the Italian kitchen. Pugliese cuts are the quintessential, timeless pasta shapes, and we’ve got them covered: Riccioli swirls; scallop-edged twists of Whole Wheat Gigli; rolled twists of Whole Wheat Strozzapreti; Orecchiete (Italian for “little ears”); Maccheroni tubes; small Girelle curls, and bright green leaves of Foglie D’Ulivo.

What goes great with Fairway pastas? Fairway Market pasta sauces, of course! With flavors like Puttanesca, Marinara, Roasted Garlic, Tomato Basil, Bolognese, and Mushroom Marinara, expect your pastas to be bursting with flavor. Combine with Fairway prepared vegetable mixes and top with a little Parmigiano-Reggiano from our remarkable Cheese Department, and quick family meals are made fast.

Try this Fairway Gigli Pasta recipe with fresh zucchini, garlic and diced tomatoes with Fairway Tomato-Basil pasta sauce.
