You can keep the sauce separate from the pasta and add the afterwards if you desire. That way if you have leftovers the pasta will not get to soft being in the sauce overnight.
You can play with different types of pastas like linguini, but the more common types are penne, rigatoni, and bowties.
For a quicker version you can substitute jarred marinara sauce if you wish. You would cook for less time as the marinara is already cooked.
You can store remaining sauce and pasta in a refrigerator for 3-4 days.
