I don't care for Angel Hair pasta. I prefer overcooked spaghetti.

A lot of people just say spaghetti, meaning any long thin noodle. But spaghetti is one size, and then there's thin spaghetti, vermicelli, angel hair...

I prefer cut/short pasta, like rotini and cavatappi, I never cook strand pasta at home.

(and by definition, angel hair/capellini is not spaghetti)

I use to enjoy Kimchi Angel Hair. My mother or wife never knew how to make it...

As so I. Diced tomatoes, mushrooms and garlic. Sautéed in a little olive oil and white wine. Light and quite tasty!

Nope. I love angel hair. And linguine. And tagliatelle. Plain spaghetti -- I'll certainly eat it, but given a preference, I'd choose a different pasta.

Me too. I don't care for angel hair at all. There used to be a thick spaghetti available that had a tiny hollow hole running through it. That was the very best. I haven't seen it in stores in years here.

Yes, but for most of the existance of many of us, there was spaghetti . Most Americans never heard of much more until the 80s. Nobody talked about "pasta". Nobody even knew there was such a word. I remember when angel hair came out and was trendy.

So when people say "spaghetti", usually they mean the standard size and shape macaroni that has always been on the store shelves, the one your mother fed you near the end of the pay period when she needed something cheap to stretch to feed a family.

I don't eat much pasta, but I like the bowties, especially when the center is chewy. And stuffed shells.
