This week’s wallpaper comes from our pasta chart, a visual guide of our favorite kind of carbs and the sauces that work with them. Readers commented that they hadn’t seen many of these varieties since childhood in Italy. Most of my childhood pasta memories revolve around Kraft mac ‘n’ cheese.

Our photographer Chris, was interested in showing the relative depths between each of the noodles, so chose to back-light them, which helped to visually describe the differences in thickness.
