    different shapes. Noodles generally refers to egg noodles, the kind in soups.

    All the rest are simply different shapes and the whole category is called pasta.

    Thickness, with spaghetti being thickest and angel hair being thinnest. The one exception in your list is linguini, which unlike the others is not a cylindrical extruded strand of pasta but is rolled flat and cut in thin ribbons.
