Are you the Pasta Masta?


"I don't think we've met, Rotelle. Very nice to meet you."

That's what I'd be saying to that pasta shape, and others listed in this challenging Pasta Quiz on AOL's beta food site. Cavatappi, is that a joke? Surely it's not a pasta. Or is it? Obviously, I need to brush up on my pasta. There is a world beyond spaghetti, penne, and rigatoni...

Take the Pasta Quiz. It may start out easy-ish, but just you wait!

And in case you're wondering, yes, cavatappi is a pasta, and it's featured in the photo at the top of this post. Who knew?

Check out the book,The Joy of Pasta. It is very old but tells you all there is to know about making pasta, sauces and even what wines to serve with it!

I got 18 out of 24! Yeah! I don't have any Italian in me, but I do appreciate Italian food!

i scored a 15...and probably only because i read so much about cooking, not because i've seen most of the pastas in the quiz!

i admit i had a few good guesses, too. :)
