Types of pasta

1.Thin, Long Noodles

Examples of fresh pasta that could be classified, as a thin, long noodle would be: spaghetti,
Vermicelli and capellini. Because these strands of pasta can be fine, it is best to pair them with a
light sauce, as to not overwhelm the pasta with a lot of sauce. Light, tomato-based, garlic or olive
oil sauces would work best, such as the classic spaghetti and marinara sauce.

2. Long, Tube-Shaped Noodles

Much like spaghetti and angel hair pasta, these types of pasta are thin and long. However, these
pastas, such as perciatelli or bucatini, have a tube running down the center of each noodle. Due to
its shape, this pasta is best paired with sauces that have a strong flavor. This is because each bite
contains more sauce, since the pasta allows for the sauce to run down the center of the noodle.

3. Flat, Long Noodles

Even though these noodles have a long, delicate shape, they are wider, thus providing a surface
that can hold a heavier sauce. Examples of flat, long noodles include fettuccine, pappardelle and
tagilatelle. Meat or game bird ragu are best paired with these kinds of fresh pasta. A popular dish
of this kind is tagliatelle alla bolognese. Seafood-based dishes do well with flat, long noodles as
well, because the meat is generally not as dense as red meat, so the pasta is still able to support it.

4. Short, Tube-Shaped Pasta

Penne, rigatoni and ziti are examples of short, tube artisan dried pasta. Due to the sturdiness of the
short tubes, these pastas can hold a much heartier sauce. Meat and sauce alike can find its way
inside the pasta, while the ridges of the tube allow for the sauce to cling to the pasta. These types
of pasta can be great for baking, like the famous baked ziti, which is typically made with tomato
sauce and ground beef.

5. Small, Tube-Shaped Pasta

Macaroni and ditalini are well-known small, tube-shaped artisan pastas. Because of the thin tubes
but strong shape, these pastas pair best with creamy and cheesy sauces. A good example for a dish
of this kind would be the all-time favorite, macaroni and cheese.

6. Short, Shaped Pasta

This particular group of pasta has a large variety, as the shapes can include everything from ridges
to curls. Farfalle and fusilli pastas are popular in this group, as they can be used with a large
variety of sauces. Since the shapes can hold sauce, heavier, cream sauces typically pair best with
these types of fresh pastas.
