Pasta tips:

 •  Generally, about 60 grams of dried pasta per person for a first course or side dish and about 90 to 115 grams per person for a main dish.

 •  When matching sauces to pasta shapes, here's a simple rule of thumb: use wide, hollow or twisted shapes for chunky sauces; flat pasta for rich, creamy sauces; and thin, long pasta for light, oily, more liquid sauces.
