I like rigatoni because the ridges catch the sauce.

My first instinct is spaghetti since that's what I'm used to.

Rigatoni and penne are rigid enough to hold the sauce, and tagliatelle is wide enough to get a decent covering too. That's what I use when I'm in a Lady and the Tramp mood, rigatoni the rest of the time.
(Anna del Conte's book Pasta is a fantastic guide to pasta shapes / sauce matches)

If you get rigatoni or penne, make sure to get the rigate so that you have the ridges!

Well, if you were actually in Bologna they would say pappardelle or tagiatelle. Which is not to talk trash on you rigatoni or penne fans, but that's the way it is.
