I have a feeling my local supermarket just scratches the surface when it comes to pasta types. With beads, strands, shells, tubes, corkscrews, bow ties, ribbons, twists, dumplings, rippled strips, gold chains, medallions, mustaches, ribbed tubes, IROCs, hats, and worms, to name a few, the Italians have seemingly left no shape un-pasta-ed.

Does anyone know the exact number of different pasta shapes? Or is this figure unknowable because in the old country so many people make their own pasta as to make the number of total shapes impossible to count or deduce?

As a follow-up, what is your preferred pasta shape? If there's a specific reason for a shape being your favorite, please state it. For example, your favorite could be the shell shape because it's as close to a vagina-shaped object (including actual vagina) that you're ever going to get.

Anyway, my favorite is plain old spaghetti-style. Why? Because there are so many goddam shapes, I don't know what the hell I want anymore, so I picked the simplest!!

I dunno how many pasta types there are but I can tell you that my favorite is Linguine. And nothing annoys me more then someone who mixes up the pasta names.  Angry  Angry Big grin

I like the wagon-wheel shapes. They don't slide off forks and hold the sauce quite well.

Capelini (aka Angel Hair).... it cooks super quick and has a nice delicate feeling to it.

Nothing like angel hair in a light butter sauce with a hint of garlic.
