How To Pair Pasta And Sauce

via Buzzfeed

Before we share the 14 Classic Pasta Sauces with you, do you know how to pair your pasta with your sauce? We had no idea that this was even a thing, but apparently it is!

Spaghetti, Linguini, and Angel Hair Pasta go best with light olive oil-based sauces. Cream-based sauces are also ideal. Carbonara is one such example.

Thick chunky meat sauces are best paired with Penne, Rigatoni, and Macaroni. If you love your Pesto and other lighter sauces, you should be selecting from Fusilli, Gemelli and Rotini. Of course, it all comes down to personal preference in the end.
