Hi Carson Ward Family, Family and Friends,
Different types of pastas: Long form or strand pastas (spaghetti, angle hair, fettuccine, linguine, etc.), ribbon pastas (lasagna, etc.), shaped pastas (elbow and shell macaroni, bowtie, spiral, orzo, risi, etc.), tubular (penne, rotini, etc.), and stuffed pastas (tortellini, ravioli, etc.). If you Google "different types of pastas" you will be amazed at how many there are and there different uses. You can also purchase some whole wheat pastas. I found the cheapest place for whole wheat spaghetti and spiral pasta is Trader Joes, about $1.25 a one pound bag. Costco and Sam's Club also has them in large quantities. Discount stores like the 99 Cent Store also carries pastas, important to watch the expiration dates. What for sales and stock up.
