DIFFERENT PASTA SHAPES 1. Macaroni - is dry pasta shaped like narrow tubes. Made with durum wheat, macaroni is commonly cut in short lengths; curved macaroni may be referred to as elbow macaroni. Some home machines can make macaroni shapes, but like most pasta, macaroni is usually made commercially by large-scale extrusion . The curved shape is created by different speeds of extrusion on opposite sides of the pasta tube as it comes out of the machine . 2. Linguine - is a type of pasta similar to fettuccine and trenette but elliptical in section rather than flat. It is about 4 millimetres (0.16 in) in width, which is wider than spaghetti but not as wide as fettuccine . The name linguine means "little tongues" in Italian , where it is a plural of the feminine linguina . A thinner version of linguine is called linguettine . Linguine was traditionally served with sauces such as pesto but others such as tomato or fish based sauces are popular as well. Linguine is typically available in both white flour and whole- wheat
