No not recipe or dish...just the type of pasta, or shape. Which is your favorite to eat or cook with?

For me, tortellini or udon noodles.

I like two very different types: angel hair and ziti.

Those are my 2 favorites too, depending on what I'm making. I also like shells or elbows for chili.


*Edit*
In fact, can anyone tell me the difference between penne, ziti and mostaccioli?
Depending on which brand you buy, they can all look the same, but the penne is always cut on an angle.

Me too!  Or rotini in place of ziti sometimes.  

And do not bring me any of that whole grain shit either.  Whole wheat pasta wrecks every dish you use it for, because that characteristic sharpish, "nutty" flavor doesn't work with the majority of pasta sauces.  Save the whole grains for the bread.

so from what I see on the web...


mostaccioli is smooth penne
penne is tubes cut at parallel angles with ridges (then why is there penne rigate??)
ziti is smooth rigatoni
rigatone is tubes cut perpendicular to the lines of the tube with ridges



I also love Cavatappi too. Great with pesto.

Depending on the recipe, thin spaghetti, penne, and egg noodles are the most often bought.

I love gnocchi, but I don't let myself have it often, because holy starch overload, Batman.

Barilla Plus Multigrain is my choice for that type of pasta. No difference in flavor, and the only difference in texture is that it takes overcooking for it not to be al dente.

I generally use fusilli and penne, but I really like linguini after having it once in a restaurant. Unfortunately I haven't seen it in any shops after that, whether fresh or dried.  sad.gif

Depends...currently in the mood for some fettuccine with clam sauce. I make the sauce myself. This may be on the menu soon. Spaghetti if there are meatballs included. Ziti if there is sausage.

As a diabetic, I have to eat the whole wheat stuff.   I don't mind it...I barely notice the difference.

My favorites are the thicker noodles, the mostacciolis, zitis, and pennes.

I notice the difference, but I like them both.

Probably Tortellini or Ravioli with Scratch made pesto.
