Strand Pastas

A general guideline is that smooth sauces are the traditional partner for strands. Flat pasta like linguine is usually paired with seafood. But in Italy, rules are made to be broken: Spaghetti is the pasta of choice for most Italians, no matter what sauce they’re having.

Types of strand pasta include: bucatini, fettuccine, fusilli (which also comes in a short version), linguine, pappardelle, spaghetti, and tagliatelle.
