Top Ten Best Types of Pasta

I love Italian food. And what do most of us think of first when we're thinking of Italian food? Well, pizza. But close behind is pasta. And these varieties of pasta are the ones we love most.

The Top Ten

1 Spaghetti Spaghetti Spaghetti is a long, thin, cylindrical, solid pasta. It is a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine.

Everybody knows and loves spaghetti. It's a difficult food to dislike. Add marinara sauce and some meatballs and you've got a perfect Italian trio! - BKAllmighty

What pasta lover doesn't love spaghetti?

Of course spaghetti is awesome. - EpicJake

2 Macaroni

I don't think I need to convince anybody of how great macaroni can be. It's the only pasta that I know that doesn't need sauce to be awesome. Just cheese, baby. Just cheese. - BKAllmighty

3 Fusilli

It's that curly pasta. I'm not sure what the difference is between fusilli and rotini, but I just went with the better-sounding one, basically. - BKAllmighty

4 Penne

Somehow a lot of pasta dishes made with penne pasta end up containing bacon. I find it strange... That more people don't eat it all the time! Pairs nicely with any sort of parmesan dish, too (I'm talking about chicken, veal, eggplant, etc...). - BKAllmighty

Throw on some alfredo sauce and shrimp… lovely. - PetSounds

Penne yum delecious and ready to eat

5 Rigatoni

Rigatoni is that sort of ridged, tubular, and hollow pasta that you usually see in a cold pasta salad (or, at least, I often use it in those sorts of dishes). I'm sure its uses are many. - BKAllmighty

6 Fettuccine

Sort of, like, a larger linguine. Basically the HUNGRY MAN of the pasta world. Bigger, especially in this case, is better! Ah, man. Now I want Fettuccine Alfredo. - BKAllmighty

7 Linguine

It makes a suitable substitute for spaghetti (but calling it a substitute would imply that you didn't like the sound of it in the first place, right? Which would obviously not be the case since this stuff is awesome). - BKAllmighty

8 Lasagne

It is the only acceptable type, besides maybe spaghetti.

If it's good enough for Garfield, it's good enough for me. - BKAllmighty

9 Ravioli

Spinach & Ricotta is one the best tasting things ever.

10 Cannelloni

I love me a good cheese cannelloni! Not a dish you find at many Italian restaurants, I find. I can't understand why. - BKAllmighty

The Contenders

11 Farfalle

Colloquially known as "bowtie" pasta. Always a fun and tasty choice in my books. - BKAllmighty

12 Angel Hair
13 Rotini
14 Ziti
15 Tagliatelle
16 Tortellini
