Spirals and Tubes

Spirals - also known as rotini - are used in a variety of dishes, including macaroni and cheese. The tri color version is a classic in pasta salad. Penne, along with mostaccioli, is an angle-cut, ridged tube that's become very popular for use with both tomato-based sauces and cream sauces, ziti, a straight, smooth tube, is a traditional favorite for baked casseroles.
