Wonderful chart, GotGarlic! Thanks! It pairs nicely with Margi's descriptions.

My two favorite shapes are Angel Hair because it cooks quickly. Bucatini because it is a fun pasta to eat. You can't pick up more than one piece at a time It refuses to twirl around your fork. So all you can do is slurp it up and hope there isn't too much sauce on the one strand and it goes flying all over your clothing. Wear a large bib. Or a bright red top to match the pasta sauce.

Thanks for the link GotGarlic, several in there I'd never seen. That Racchette is awesome, I gotta find some and use it in a dish now.
