Cavatelli, also called gnocci. It holds the pasta sauce really well.

Tough question alright! I love spaghetti, farfalle, Penne, and linguini. I'm making some Penne tonight. I like to just saute evoo and lots of garlic, cayenne peppers, and a few veggies and add either chicken or shrimp. Tonight...........it's shrimp!

Angel hair, hands down. Especially this time of year with basil plants and fresh tomatoes out my kitchen door. I like it all, but I really have a thing for angel hair, especially when there are fresh veggies around. It's a quick meal for one. My favorite brand is Barilla, because it holds up to being refridgerated and reheated better than most brands.

Pasta is a staple in our house, we love it all. But when I'm cooking just for me, the angel hair comes out.

Second favorite are small shells or elbows (I love the Mexican brand, of course I can't think of the name right now, also their fidello).

But none of it is bad. Least favorite would be big pasta -- caneloni, lasagna, big stuffed shells. But calling this least favorite is like picking your least favorite child. It's all great stuff.

Claire - but do you REALLY like angel hair? Angel hair is my hubby's favorite - he doesn't care what the sauce is just make it angel hair!

DH loved angel hair pasta for a long time and when I asked him why, he said it was because it cooked the quickest. I like penne.

I absolutely love pasta dishes so......if I had to pick I'd say spaghetti, fettuchini, linguini, ravioli, and penne.

My mom made that with spaghetti and no corn...she called it "slumgullion". I make it with elbow macaroni, spaghetti sauce, corn or beans with Velveeta Cheese on top and call it "Texas More" cause I learned to fix it in Texas, and everyone asks for "more".

It's really hard for me to pick a favorite, but I use wide egg noodles more than anything else. I love bowties, shells, and all the rest.
We get by with a little help from our friends

I'm with Tweedee, I love all pasta. My favourites are the thick ones, bucatini, perciatelli, campanelle, and the best is the long really thick macaroni.

Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.
