All About PastaPast comes in all shapes and sizes, from itty-bitty bowties (also known as farfalle) to long, fat strands of spaghetti. In fact, there are around 350 different types of pasta! Generally pasta types are organized into five categories: long, tubes, soup, stuffed, and special shapes, each category is used in different types of dishes. For example, some cooks say that thin sauces should be served with thin pastas like angel hair, and thicker sauces require heavier pastas like spaghetti.
