Can anyone explain to me why there are so many different shapes of pasta?

For all the different sorts of sauces one can make, and for all the different tastes that different shapes have, and for the sheer beauty and fun of eating

Right, it’s an art!

Some are really fun: hard to tell what differentiate all the “Hand-roll Strands”.

Lot of inspiration. Thanks

Different shapes for different uses. Orzo and acini de pepe work much better in soup than fettucine would.

Besides, if the only pasta was ziti, and macaroni and cheese is commonly shortened to “mac-and-cheese”, I’d hate to think how ziti and cheese would be shortened…
