Pick Your Pasta! (Poll)
Today, October 17th is National Pasta Day! Did you know that there are over 600 different pasta shapes?
It is the shape of the noodle that gives pasta its name. Some examples:
Spaghetti - cord Linguini - little tongues
Vermicelli - little worms Conchiglie - shells
Rotini - spirals Fettucine - small ribbons
Ravioli - little turnips Capellini - fine hairs
Fusilli - little spindles Cannelloni - tubes
Tortellini - little cakes Penne - quills
Rigatoni - short, wide fluted tubes
Lasagna - broad, sometimes ruffled, ribbons of pasta
Some people will only eat one kind of pasta. I know my children prefer penne over spaghetti. So here's your chance to Pick Your Pasta!
And if you're old enough, you'll remember that Wednesday was Prince Spaghetti Day in Boston!
