Pasta Shapes: The Geometry of Gastronomy

The different names of pasta noodles aren’t just to make reading the menu more fun. Let Groupon’s guide to common pasta shapes help you understand the function behind each form.

Around the world, there are more than 500 varieties of pasta noodles, all designed to do everything from soak up tomato sauce to hold small chunks of meat in a hollow center. Here’s a rundown of some of the most popular varieties, separated into two categories—long and short cut:

Long Cuts: Making for an easy twirl around the fork, these lengthy, smooth noodles usually work best with full-bodied or simple olive-oil sauces devoid of chunky morsels.

  • Spaghetti: Stemming from the Italian word spago, which literally means “string,” this thin and cylindrical noodle is a tried-and-true base for tomato sauces.
  • Capellini (Angel Hair): As spaghetti’s much-thinner cousin, angel hair is better suited for lighter sauces and sewing patches onto tattered lasagnas.
  • Fettuccine: Similar to a long, flat ribbon, this noodle is able to support thicker sauces such as creamy alfredo because of its wide surface area.
  • Linguine: Although it looks similar to spaghetti, linguine has a subtle difference. It bends slightly inward, creating a trench-like cross section in which seafood- and tomato-based sauces can easily flow.

Short Cuts: Shorter and denser than their counterparts, these noodles can handle heftier toppings and plenty of chunky vegetables.

  • Penne: This tubular variety’s hollow center allows sauce to flood the entire noodle, adding a punch of flavor to every bite. To help with this, the ends are also cut at an angle, creating a larger entryway.
  • Rigatoni: Although also tubular, rigatoni is wider, often takes on a curved shape, and sports tiny exterior ridges that help ensnare more sauce.
  • Conchiglie: Also known as a “shell” for its conch-like appearance, conchiglie holds chunky sauces particularly well within its cozy interior.
  • Farfalle: When making this decorative noodle, pasta chefs pinch the dough in the center to lend it a bow-tie shape. Aside from rounding out fine Italian tuxedos, this shape helps the noodle stay firm as it cooks and catch just the right amount of sauce in its knotted grooves.

"Best Spaghetti and Meatballs!"
My husband can't get enough of the Spaghetti and Meatballs from Metro!!! I love the veggie panini that has eggplant on it. Whether you order pizza, pasta, or a sandwich, you are going to get authentic cuisine. Great prices, great service and great food!

"OK Pizza"
Went here for lunch and got a small pepperoni pizza and a Coke. Pizza wasn't to bad. Place seemed like a Mom and Pop place as opposed to a large chain. No complaints!

"Wonderful food! "
We had to stop at this exit on a road trip. Looking for dinner, we found this gem. The food was fresh, the lasagna was homemade, fresh and the best I had since Europe. The salad was crisp and the blue cheese dressing tasted homemade,creamy, and not vinegary. The bread sticks were soft, but... Read More
