23 out of 24. Most of the shapes are even on my pantry shelf. We love our pasta here.

I've never even seen half of them. My kids refuse to eat anything but elbowroni, and my wife doesn't like past alltogether. Embarasing 6 out of 24. And i should know better, I spent like half a year in Italy.

15 - but I guessed at a few. Don't really use too many different ones, maybe 7.

I got 15 but quite a few of the shapes we don't get here, so some I just got their names from the clues.

I only got 17 of 24, but I was lucky to get that. I had never heard of some of them. My limited knowledge of Spanish and even more limited knowledge of Italian helped me with some of the Italian names.

16/24...Pasta underachiever. And to be fair, at least one of my correct answers was just a guess. Many of the others were educated guesses!

24 for 24.....Considering I've eaten pasta at least 3 times a week since the year I was born, growing up with a multitude of Ronzoni boxes in the house, I'd better have gotten them all right!
