This fun, animated video follows the history of pasta from 5th century Sicily to the present day.
In this episode of Handcrafted (fka Beautiful Butchery), the Pastaio of Eataly Flatiron, Luca D'Onofrio, shows Bon Appétit how to turn four types of pasta dough -- egg pasta dough, spinach pasta dough, cuttlefish squid ink pasta dough, and semolina pasta dough -- into beautiful, handmade pasta shapes.

Semolina pasta is a southern Italy specialty. From that dough, Luca makes cavatelli, malloreddus, lorighittas, cencioni, capunti, strascinati, culurgionis, and sagne incannulate. From the egg dough, D'Onofrio makes fusilli al ferretto, tagliatelle, tortellini, farfalle, garganelli, anolini, cappelletti, tagliolini, agnolotti, sacchetti. From the spinach dough, Luca makes foglie d'ulivo, trofie, fagiolini, and pappardelle. From the cuttlefish squid ink pasta dough, D'Onofrio makes orecchiette, strichetti, fettuccine, and corzetti.

How to Pronounce Pasta Types (with a REAL ITALIAN)
There is real rhyme and reason for pairing certain pasta shapes with certain sauces. Pasta is designed to carry the flavors and textures of the sauce to the mouth, so a thicker meatier sauce needs a pasta shape with "pockets" like farfalle and a thiner sauce like marinara is best with a spaghetti or bucatini.
