Pasta is a staple food that comes hundreds of different shapes.
They are shaped primarily to act as a carrier for the sauce.
The type of sauce and the type of pasta are usually matched
based on consistency and ease of eating.
Light, thin sauces, such as a lemon cream, should be served
angel hair or thin spaghetti. Heavier sauces, like tomato
based sauces should be served with thicker pasta shapes, like
fettuccine and lasagne.
