50 savory pasta recipes for your next family meal

Some estimates put the number of pasta shapes at well over 600, each with a different purpose. Long , thin noodles like spaghetti and angel hair go well with smoother and thinner sauces that can spread evenly along the pasta. Chunky sauces work best with short pastas flush with grooves and bends to catch every last bit of flavor.

Methodology: Stacker compiled a list of pasta recipes from Allrecipes. Get ready for hearty stuffed shells, savory casseroles, and delicate flavor profiles on new sauces to try out that will pass the test of any pasta-lover.
