To me, the cascatelli looks more like an octopus tentacle cut lengthways. But serve it up to me with a nice sauce and I’ll gladly give it a go, as I will with any shape pasta as long as you don’t overcook it. I never do.

There are at least 350 shapes of pasta you can buy. 

I doubt anyone can find more than ten unless they roll their own.

The seashell shape is my favorite, it holds sauce well and can conveniently be eaten with a spoon.
