We are pretty well stocked with pasta. But this is even way before the corona because my SO loves it. With all the variety of shapes out there. What do you normally buy to cook? We have:
- Spaghetti (regular, not thick nor thin)
- Macaroni (maccheroni) for chicken noodle soup, Mac & Cheese or Hawaiian style salad
- Either rotini (fusilli) or bow tie (farfalle) for other cold salads or baking
How about you?

Mine loves pasta as well. I could cook him pasta every day for the rest of his life and he would die a happy man.
We buy spaghetti, capellini, lasagna, macaroni, fusilli, farfalle, penne, linguine, gnocchi, orzo, rigatoni and the ones that look like shells.

I like angel hair and linguine for thinner sauces and fusilli for mac and cheese. Every so often I’ll buy new shapes for a change. Lol

Finally! Someone asking the real questions.
Angel hair spaghetti for spaghetti, elbow or the nugget type for chop suey or plain pasta, orzo for anything lemon based.

Spaghetti (regular or thick)
Penne or Ziti – I’m making baked ziti in Friday and I’m very excited about it, it’s one of my favorite recipes!
The only type I never buy is angel hair.

I’m an Aussie but my parents were both born in Italy. I love me some pasta obviously! I go to specialty stores which cater to Italian Australians. I’m very picky about the brands of pasta I buy too. I only buy de cecco, barilla and granoro brands. My fave shapes are bucatini, gnocchi sardi/cavatelli, casarecce, orecchiete, conchigliette, ziti, anneli
I also love maccheroni siciliani. Its a hybrid between ziti and a casarecce shape. My grandmother used to make them fresh and she had a special wire that she’d use to roll the shape. I make fresh pasta at home but I’ve never attempted to make the maccheroni siciliani. I just eat them by the truckload when I visit my family in Sicily. A elderly lady in the town makes them to order daily and you take them home and cook them with whatever sauce. It’s amazing to watch her speed when she rolls them out!

Lately I’ve been OBSESSED with gemelli. It’s like a smaller more compact version of spirals. It’s so freaking good and feels a little more exotic than some of my regulars (penne and farfalle are my typical go tos). Also love Pappardelle, it’s wider noodles that are usually sold in bags rather than in the box.

Penne or cavatappi (corkscrew) is my favourite. I don’t like long pasta, but my husband likes linguini/fettucini.
I hate farfalle (bowtie) because I find it so hard to cook nicely. The edges are mushy before the center gets done!

I love gnocchi. When I’m overly ambitious I make it myself. Ditalini has always been a favorite because my grandma didn’t like me eating it (she used it in soup). So of course I wanted it more. I really love most pastas. I always have a ton and i know my fiancé thought I was crazy when I wanted even more recently. But I’m stuck at home and it’s filling.

Penne or Cavatappi. I’m not into long noodles. I’m too clumsy and it ends up splattering all over. LOL

Bucatini! We received pasta maker attachments for our Kitchenaid for our wedding so as long as we have flour, we’ll be fine 🙂

I only eat my own pasta but I can’t do any other shapes besides linguini, spaghetti, or flat noodles for lasagna 😂 I Also do gnocchi
