Pairing Pasta with Sauce | Bon Appétit

Matching pasta shapes to sauces play a bigger part in sauce pairings. Choosing the right pasta depends on the topping. 

Tubular shapes like penne and ziti are perfect with thick sauces 

Wide, flat pastas like pappardelle are ideal for soaking up creamy sauces, the wider the noodle, the heavier the sauce.

Long, round pastas like spaghetti are best with olive oil- and tomato-based sauces. 

Chunky vegetable sauces absolutely go better with short pastas 

Choosing a pasta shape to suit the nature of your sauce makes a big difference to the finished dish.

The Ancient Healing Spice 

Cinnamon is a spice commonly used in cooking that comes from the bark of the cinnamon tree. When the bark is removed, it’s called a cinnamon stick. 

Cinnamon has also been used as medicine in traditional healing. You can grind up fresh cinnamon sticks to make tea, to cook into your food or sprinkle on oatmeal, soups, rice dishes or desserts.

 In Ayurvedic terms, cinnamon pacifies Vata and Kapha doshas. It has a sweet, pungent, and bitter rasa, taste and is excellent for digestion, strengthening the heart and warming the kidneys. 

However you apply cinnamon in stick or in powder form, cinnamon is sure to spice up your life!
