Why My Favorite Pasta Shape is Linguine

Linguine al Limone Pasta mit ZitronengeschmackI think everyone has a particular shaped pasta they prefer over others…

Some people prefer short pasta shapes, some prefer long pasta shapes, some have one of each!

Well, I just thought I’d share my favorite pasta type. By far, I prefer Linguine!

Linguine is a long pasta shape, as you can see in the photos above.

Why do I love Linguine?

  • I love that it is long and you and you can twirl it on your spoon to eat it – so very Italiano. 🙂
  • I like that it is thicker than spaghetti, and thinner than fettuccine.
  • It is perfect to eat al dente because it has the perfect bite!
  • It holds sauce pretty well since it’s a long pasta.
  • It’s fun to say…LOL!

Fusilli Napoletani trafilati gezogen nach Neapolitaner Art PastaIf I had to choose a short pasta shape, I think I would choose fusilli! It looks like a corkscrew and is amazing at holding sauces…It’s a fun shape with some flamboyance. I especially love to spice up the look of my macaroni & cheese by using instead of macaroni elbows, fusilli…try using the multi-colored versions.

Now, as pictured to the right, fusilli can also come in a longer form, which is fabulous as well, but I like the shorter noodles best.
