Famously, one of the most simple and most delicious ingredients to cook with is pasta. Pasta is versatile, relatively quick to boil and works with a variety of flavors. There are over 300 kinds of pastas, varying in length, thickness, shape, and cut. Pasta shapes are specifically designed to hold sauce in the best way possible. For example, a spaghetti is most commonly paired with a marinara sauce, while pappardelle is best with a bolognese.
In addition to the shape, pasta is also classified as dry or fresh. Dry pasta is firm and goes best with robust sauces, but fresh pasta is delicate and should be paired with light sauces. Another way to categorize pastas is by their length. There are two types: long form pasta and short form pasta. Ribbon pasta is a form of long form pasta, and tubular, shaped, and stuffed pastas are types of short form pasta.
They are each served best with different kinds of ingredients. Before you get your flash cards out to begin memorizing pasta 101, Personal Creations has created an infographic on the different kinds of pasta, the sauces they should be cooked with, and their cook times. If you like cooking with pasta, keep this list on hand and you’ll be a master at it in no time!
