Rigatoni is a good pasta to serve with fairly thick cream- or tomato-based sauces, as its shape holds the sauce well. It’s also good for using in pasta bakes. Penne makes a good substitute for rigatoni if the latter is unavailable.
Spiral-shaped pasta that comes in plain, wholewheat and flavoured varieties. Fusilli tricolore comes in three colours: white, green, and red. The twists and turns are good for holding rich, chunky pasta sauces. Fusilli bucatti has slightly rounder, tighter spirals than regular fusilli.
