@ Craig,

Yes, I have to say it is quite difficult considering there are over 365 Italian pasta dishes in Italy ! I enjoy almost all of them ... I prefer olive oil and garlic and / or tomato based sauces however ... Basil Pesto, Bolognese and Vongole ( clams ) are some of my other faves. And NORMA which is a Sicilian Aubergine Vegetable & Tomato & Goat or Ricotta Cheese Sauce.

Have nice wkend and thanks for your post.
Margi.

I never met a pasta dish I didn't like. My favorite is fresh homemade - lemon or spinach with butter and grated parmesan.

There are so many flavors (& shapes) you can make at home:

Pasta Flavors:
Types of Pasta - How To Cooking Tips - RecipeTips.com

I have an Imperia pasta maker & a dumpling press:

I have been thinking about a star raviolamp:

Amazon.com: Imperia - Mould for Ravioli - Raviolamp - Little stars 10: Home & Kitchen

I like butternut squash filled ravioli with brown butter & sage sauce.

The market carries a pretty good fresh ravioli stuffed with lobster.

Pierogies, dumplings, manicotti cheese & spinach stuffed shells, & tortellini are some other favorites.

Too many to list.

My current favorite is spaghetti alla carbonara. Rich and creamy with the salty meaty flavor of pancetta/guanciale and the unctuous rich creaminess of the egg yolk. Out of this world!
