2008_04_03-pastashapequiz.jpg Think you know your fusilli from your gemelli? Can you tell the difference between stellete and pastina? Looking for a ten-minute brain diversion, we stumbled upon this fun little quiz.

AOL's pasta shape identification quiz is harder than it looks. We were quite pleased to even get 19 out of 24, and that was with one or two lucky guesses. But even if you don't do very well, it's awesome to be reminded of all these shapes and textures of pasta. We were just a little sad not to see some of our favorites: strozzapretti or Fregola

Once you've taken the quiz, we'll bet you'll have a pasta craving. If so, check out these recipes:

Lemon-pepper Pasta with Capers
Rich No-cream Wild Mushroom Pasta Sauce
Roasted Garlic, Olive, and Tomato Pasta Salad
Broccoli and Feta Pasta Salad
Ricotta Pasta with Fava Beans and Bacon
