Pasta shapes you like

my new 1 is spaghetti rigatti. it's like spaghetti with ridges & holds sauce very well.

rotini is great in pasta salads, but i love the little bowties...

If I have to choose between loving you, and breathing, I would use my last breath to say I LOVE YOU.

I love penne rigate but I think one of my all time favourites for the shape itself and the way it picks up sauce flavours is farfalle (bow ties). I use it in home dishes and catering recipes all the time. Often when I need a vegetarian dish I will do a pasta primavera with farfalle and it is always a hit.

Penne and rotini are my favorites, since they hold sauces so well, although I regularly use a dozen or so more shapes.
