    I've given up campaign advising fans of pasta "they're all the same thing".
    Now might focus on manufacturers, how much production square footage are used up, running somewhere between 50 and 600 varieties (even google can't decide,https://www.google.com/search?client...eties+of+pasta).
    I'll propose streamlining for them, figure 4 ought to be sufficient; smooth, textured, flat, cupped.

    With all the additional space, start building cars!

    Does the remaining material get recycled back into a sheet to make more? Or do they just use that to make plain old spaghetti with the left over stuff?

    My personal favorite is Spaghetti Rigati. Which has little ridges along the strand to capture more sauce!!!! But is is difficult to find in stores around here.

    I have also wondered why there are so many different kinds!!!! But I am a believer in "to each their own".

    Not completely true differing forms of pasta have differing levels of gluten due to the amount of stretching and pulling of the dough then there are the vegetable varieties. Want to start an argument which will lead into an all-out war go to Italy and tell a bunch of pasta chefs that their pastas are all the same, better yet please don't I'd hate to hear that a friend of mine was lynched over the difference between a plate of spaghetti and Rotini.

    Aaaaah, the varied levels of gluten. I'm positive that was foremost in minds of pasta engineers past few hundred years. Now, you can't buy a thing without a "Non-Gluten" tag or Prop 65 warning.
    I believe the case is a handful of guys outdoing each other in wacky means to extrude different SHAPES, enticing cooks with variety used as a selling point. After first 201, no restraints, once graphite and wire EDM's had been invented to replace die filers.
    War with Italian chef's, think I'll contact Xiden's ambassador to Italy and trick her into it.

    Just don't ask his press secretary to help explain things that poor child is frazzled enough. At times I even feel kind of sorry for her, but not too much, maybe she needs a large plate of lasagna with lots of cheese extra meat and my special sauce.
