Pasta shapes are aesthetically pleasing. They are warm, they’re playful, even comforting. And they have interesting names if you think about it. In the Pasta Names Explained article, I went through the most common pasta cuts and gave an explanation of the origin of their names in the form of a literal translation.
As 2011 wraps up, I created a downloadable Pasta Calendar, featuring 12 high-resolution pictures of some of the most interesting types of pasta – one for each month of the year. The calendar is free for everyone, but to download your copy you will have to answer a simple quiz :). It’s really just for fun – I hope you’ll enjoy the game and that you’ll like the calendar.
