spaghetti or linguine, hands down.

I like rigatoni because the ridges catch the sauce.
My first instinct is spaghetti since that's what I'm used to.
Also, I just read this today which you may find useful: http://www.cooksillustrated...
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.

tagliatelle or rigatoni
Thanks so much everyone!
If you get rigatoni or penne, make sure to get the rigate so that you have the ridges!
pierino is a trusted source on General Cooking and Tough Love.
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.
