The preferred spelling is Fettuccine. That is probably why so few are getting that one right.

I guessed every body part and was starting to get into Latin. Except the answer of course! Made for all kinds of interesting images in my brain (toenail shaped pasta, intestine shaped pasta, butt shaped pasta).

Since I knew what tortellini look like, I just started naming… orifices. ALL the orifices. I mean, I wouldn't put it past the Italians to do something like that. It would have gone really well with puttanesca sauce, come to think of it.

Hilarious! Knowing what tortellini look didn't help me much, and orifices didn't occur to me. I love pasta puttanesca, such fragrant comfort food and so easy to cook :) (and yes I know the backstory).

I think people keep replaying the quizzes until they have a high score or until they remember it all but yeah, I always seem to be just below average even after I think I've done well
