Pasta is amazing. There are so many different shapes and kinds, each with a unique name and meaning. How well do you know your pasta? Here’s a handy cheat sheet that illustrates just a handful of the many pasta pastabilities: 


Considering the wide variety of noodles, toppings and sauces, the combinations are truly endless. And that makes pasta even more amazing. 

Have you ever wondered… If you were a pasta, what would your pasta name be? 

Yes, of course you have.

What, you haven’t?! Well since it is National Pasta Day, we also put together a handy guide to reveal your pasta name.

If the last letter of your first name is… 

A – roni

D – elle
