Linguini
Capellini
Penne
Orrichietti (love it in my Italian sausage, ricotta, mozzarella, egg, touch of tomato sauce, etc. casserole)
Rotini

I guess that's 5 - and for good luck Pappardelle

Most of the pasta we eat here at home is Spaghetti. I have some Basil growing, and I plan on introducing PeppA and her Mom (not sure about the boys yet) to the joys of homemade Pesto.

That said, I have soft spots for Linguine, Fettucine, Tortellini, and a few others.

I may have to do a Linguine/Tortellini combo with the Pesto.

Allen, my 4 year old grandsons favorite pasta is pasta with pesto..He loves tortellini pesto salad, with tomato and extra pine nuts..He even likes diced tomato on his pasta and pesto..I bet your family will love your homemade pesto.

I like penne the best. Our two most common pasta dishes in this house are penne with fresh mozz, homemade pesto, and tomatoes, my son's favorite meal is homemade macaroni and cheese. Penne works well with both.

We went through a period where all my son wanted for breakfast was cheese tortellini - twas fine by me! Sometimes he wanted a little butter but most of the time it was just cooled.

I love them all...as long as they are not over-cooked!

Pasta is my favorite comfort food!
I love it all, but here are a couple of favs:
*ravioli (especially the cheese variety, topped with alfredo (with a hint of nutmeg) and fresh romano on top
*linguine with most meat sauces
*tri-color rotini that has pepper in it, tossed into a pasta salad with sliced black olives, marinated artichoke hearts, roasted red and yellow bell peppers and a smooth red wine vinaigrette.
