General KnOWLedge: Why does pasta come in so many different shapes?

Discover the reasons why this delicious food is so varied

Do you love pasta? A better question might be who doesn't love pasta?

Young and old, almost all of us have a soft spot for this versatile food. It's one that pairs as easily with vegetables as with meats, that works as well under a piping hot stew, or served cold as a salad in the park.

Of course, an even better question would be which kind of pasta is your favourite? Because one of the secrets to pasta's versatility is the fact that it comes in so many different shapes.

Why is that?

Food shapeshifter

In today's OWLconnected General KnOWLedge, we're answering that very question. Because even when put alongside other handy grains and starches — such as rice, potatoes, quinoa, or bulgur — pasta is unique for all of its available sizes and styles.

There's a reason why they all exist, too. The dish is king, and they are there to serve it. Feast on the knowledge for yourselves below!
