Many Pasta Shapes

Whenever I go to grocery shop, I found so many pasta shapes. I make pasta at home but with few types. One day I wanted to find out about pasta types and shapes, saw many shapes in stores and tried to recollect its names. This is just a info about My Pasta, means pasta known by me ;-)

In Italy, when dining is an art form, pasta shapes have been by nature-each designed to bring uniquely delicious culinary experience to your family's table. Its a sentiment that is at the heart of every authentic Italian meal ,where family and friends connect and celebrate good food and good relationships.

And pasta has been always at the center of these tables. With an infinite variety of authentic pasta and sauce pairings ,it's no wonder Italian families can eat pasta every day and never get bored.

Types of Pasta and Shapes

Stelline-These tiny stars used in soups throughout Italy from childhood on. A charming and fun introduction to pasta.
Farfalle-'Butterfly' or 'bow-tie' pasta from 16th century Northern Italy goes beautifully with Barilla Calabrese sauce, made from tomatoes and sweet peppers.
Linguine-Long and flat, thinner than Fettuccine. Great with seafood-or just basil, garlic, pine nuts, olive oil, and cheese for pesto Genovese.
Cellentani-Its whimsical corkscrew shape makes it fun to eat and perfect with a hearty sauce to wrap vegetables, meat or fish in every forkful.
Spaghetti-A ridged version of classis spaghetti with delicate grooves to hold in more sauce per bite, such as spicy barilla Arrabbiata Sauce, its perfect accompaniment.
Campanelle-Shaped like a bellflower. The hollow centers are perfect for capturing hearty sauces like cheese.
