If you don’t buy the right pasta, you CANNOT make good pasta dishes.

At all time in my pantry, I make sure to have at least one type of :
LONG PASTA : like spaghetti, fettuccine
SHORT PASTA : Rigatoni, farfalle,
TINY PASTA : Stelline, risoni

Pasta names :
Spaghetti : comes spago means string in italian.
Penne is like a “feather”
Conchiglie = a seashell
Orecchiette = little ears
Farfalle = butterfly
Lumache = Snail

Pasta size variations
The PASTA geek inside of me loves what follows : It’s a common thing for Italian pasta makers to use classic shapes and make them larger or smaller. When they do so, they alter the name of the pasta slightly…
– Diminutive suffixes : -ini, -elli, -illi, -etti or the feminine plurals -ine, -elle, -ette etc., all conveying the sense of “little”
– Augmentative suffixes : -oni, -one, meaning “large”.

Sometimes instead of a suffix pasta makers will use an additional word :
Mezze which means HALF : mezze penne, mezze maniche
Picoli which means small : picoli ditali
Giganti : which means giant : Fusili Giganti
Just imagine the size of this one Lumac-oni Giganti (like a Sauce Wheelbarrow)

Important Pasta Package mentions
– Trafilatura (or trafila) al bronzo (the best)
– Lenta essiccazione, bassa temperatura (also the best, haha)
– Pasta di Gragnano
