Pasta is a food consisting of only two ingredients, flour and water, or three if air is also considered. In this format and simplicity of ingredients, the quality of the pasta is highly influenced by the quality of the ingredient.

Today, shapes available include fusilli, penne rigate, rigatoni, spaghetti, tagliatelle, fettuccine, linguine, pappardelle, tagliolini, lasagne, tubetti, riccioli, gigli, mezze maniche, farfalle, strozzapreti, paccheri, chiocciole, maltagliati, cavatelli, cavatappi, filini, stelline, tempestine, and ditalini.
Additionally, some pasta makers utilize bronze drawing, a technique of producing dry pasta typically considered more artisan, that results in a surface of the finished pasta more porous and rough and having a greater capacity to carry sauces and toppings. Some pasta makers also choose slow drying at low temperatures to preserve nutrition and the unique taste of this ancient grain.
