Take Five: Top 5 Pasta Styles You Need To Try According To Young Franco
Words by Joey Da Rin aka Young Franco
I love Pasta! It has a very close place in my heart. Dad's side of the family is Italian so it's been a staple my whole life.
Holds sauce really well with its ridges and big centre.
Pairing suggestion: Can't go past it for a creamy recipe.
Check out a great Rigatoni with Mushroom Sauce recipe by The Modern Proper HERE.
Linguine has to be my 2nd favourite!
Pairing suggestion: I make pesto reasonably often and it's so good with it, or maybe white wine & clams??
Searching for a fab linguine pesto recipe? Check out Food and Wine's delicious Linguine with Broccoli Rabe-Walnut Pesto recipe HERE.
My Favourite, the goat (the greatest of all time for those playing at home). This is my favourite to make too.
Pairing suggestion: So good with a ragu or a hearty meat sauce. But also great for seafood.
The classic, so versatile. You can't really go wrong with it.
Pairing suggestion: Love spaghetti with meatballs especially.
We recommend checking out Julie Goodwin's yummy cheese stuffed spaghetti and meatball recipe HERE.
Love. Lots of grooves and crevices to catch extra sauce.
Pairing suggestion: I made Fusilli Alla Vodka a few weeks ago ~ the perfect pairing!
Haven't made Fusilli Alla Vodka before? Consider trying out Jon & Vinny's recipe via Bon Appetit HERE.
