Short angel hair vegetables pasta

I went to get pasta and found this short angel hair pasta from San Remo brand. I have not eaten this shape before and thought let try and see what the different between this and rigatoni or spiral or bow pasta. I have been told that bow pasta is not Italian ingredient. Yet the San Remo company call them bow pasta.

Then I also learned that there are American Italian and pure Italian recipes which the ingredients are different and the name for it. We live in a world that are multicultural, different type of food are import and export yet come to cooking it I have to be careful using the correct ingredients to enable me to post in Italian group.

Google: “Angel hair pasta is similar to capellini, angel hair is actually a bit thinner. Capellini’s diameter measures between 0.85 and 0.92 millimetres, while angel hair’s diameter is between 0.78 and 0.88.” Can capellini be broken into small size and do they have short capellini?

My sister gives me half zucchini, my dad friend gives him home grown green tomatoes and I have added carrot and vegetable stock to go with this pasta. I hope it’s Italian dish for its comfort, delicious and pasta. Let’s cook!!!
