List of pasta
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaJump to: navigation, search

Some different colours and shapes of pasta, in a pasta specialty store in Venice.This list includes types of pasta from culinary traditions around the world.

Many types are made of the same pasta dough and differ only in the shape of the pieces. However, the shape usually affects cooking time, consistency, ability to hold sauce, ease of eating, etc. Therefore, certain shapes are better suited for certain dishes, and such pairings may be part of certain cooking traditions. For example, the amatriciana sauce is generally used with bucatini pasta, and hardly ever with spaghetti or other shapes.

Some pasta varieties are uniquely regional and not widely known; some types may have different names in different languages, or sometimes in the same language. For example, the cut rotelle is also called ruote in Italy and "wagon wheels" in the US. Manufacturers and cooks often invent new shapes of pasta; or may invent new names for old shapes for marketing reasons.

Italian pasta names often end with the masculine plural suffixes -ini, -elli, -illi, -etti or the feminine plurals -ine, -elle etc., all conveying the sense of "little"; or with -oni, -one, meaning "large". Many other suffixes like -otti ("largish") and -acci ("rough", "badly made") may occur too. All pasta type names are plural in Italian.
