This is no ordinary pasta -- and that's why you should make it. Garganelli is practical like penne and rustic like tagliatelle, and since it's not a common shape, dinner guests will be floored. Don't be afraid to experiment with different sauces -- try it with Fennel and Veal Sausage, or baked into cheesy goodness wth pumpkin and pancetta. Bonus? You get to use a pencil.
