If we made pasta with an extremely large surface area to volume ratio, like the brain, it would cook a whole lot faster.

       by 'volume ration', (ratio?) you must mean thickness...   

       a larger noodle takes longer, mostly depends on the thickness of the noodle. a lasagna noodle takes longer to cook through unless it is very thin. someone else can explain the physucks.

       I've never understood quick-cook pasta, what's the point? Pasta cooks in a maximum of fifteen minutes - it's just about the quickest way you can prepare a decent meal. I suspect [DF] is right about cooking times, but I'd buy his pasta for one reason only: it looks like a brain.

       Maybe a pasta that is full of holes like coral?

       It has to come in tomato sauce. Deep, thick, and very red tomato sauce... Mmm, give me a bowl of that.   

       Funny lookin' bowl, this...

       Sounds like this would make good Bella Napoli, or what we call Porkrinds and dip.

       Maybe really fancy brain pasta could write that computer program you should be finishing.
