    Tubular shapes like penne and ziti are perfect with hearty, thick sauces like ragu. Rigate, the ridged ones, capture even more sauce. Wide, flat pastas like pappardelle are ideal for sopping up creamy sauces. Generally, the wider the noodle, the heavier the sauce.
    For authentic "al dente" pasta, boil uncovered, stirring occasionally for11 minutes. For more tender pasta, boil an additional 1 minute. Remove from heat. Drain well..
