How many types of pasta products do you have in your pantry?


I have 7 different types, that go along with three types of tomatoe sauce, tomatoe's, paste, soups, and cheese sauces.

ROFL - I never counted! We always have a large assortment of pasta around here, too, including some that just look too strange for words, LOL! I have some rather odd-looking multi-colored pastel lamb's ear looking things that I ended up using in craft projects because they come out a bit too soft when cooked. And I have a pair of big glass jars shaped a bit like garlic cloves to hold multi-colored pasta on my counter. They look cool!

My pantry is stuffed with Italian and Asian noodles, from thin spaghetti to rice noodles and soba. I really love colorful small macaroni or rotini and tri-color orzo. I also have a pasta machine, so I make pasta, now and then, too.

If you asked how many varieties of rice I have, that would be easier, LOL! 3 - jasmine basmati, sushi and Japanese.

Dh is not a pasta lover, but dd and I are, so, without going to my pantry to check, this is what I remember I got:


angel hair

elbow macaroni

lasagna noodles

rigatoni (the large ones for stuffing)

And then I got an assortment of Mexican pastas for making soups: mini-elbow, melon seeds, stars, and the abc's!!

Love soups!
