An Infographic to Test Your Pasta Knowledge

An Infographic to Test Your Pasta Knowledge

My own personal knowledge of the different styles of Italian noodles tends towards the basic. Spaghetti, check. Lasagna, check. Macaroni, check. Funghini — wait, what? Remember this pasta guide from earlier in the week? Well, here's another. This infographic is a great way to learn the ins and the outs of those crazy shapes. How well do you know your pasta?

The folks over at Charming Italy have made a giant (seriously) graphic of all sorts of different pasta. It works like many other infographics (and Choose Your Own Adventure books): you start with what you know and it guides you through the rest.

Want to test your pasta knowledge? Click on the graphic below to see the full-size version. Although you probably won't hang it in your kitchen, it's still a great resource for all those funky names and crazy little shapes.
