the geometry of pasta


from a review of the geometry of pasta:

[Included in this book are recipes detailing] the ingredients needed for over 200 sauce preparations that run the gamut from obscure (Lumace alla Lumache, or Snails with Snails) to the near pedestrian, like Frankfurters and Fontina, a recommended pairing with the wheel shaped Rotelline, "a complex, arguably uninspired shape that was only possible with the advancement of the pasta industries mechanization," an advancement that was apparently "much lauded by the Fascists."
