Joining the many gluten-free pastas made from vegetables is fava bean fusilli, from Explore Cuisine, a company that specializes in such alternatives. The little corkscrews have a mild flavor, but they’re softer and somewhat more fragile than traditional fusilli, so they’re best cooked al dente. Toss them with pesto or fresh chopped tomatoes and herbs, or diced butternut squash and mushrooms as the weather cools.
