What pasta is your code?

This was a great lunch discussion. It went something like this:
"Our code is basically spaghetti code, it sucks."
"Well, what should it be? Rigatoni, so it's more self-contained?"
"No, rigatoni has too many holes. How about lasagna, a layered design?"
"No, I think gnocchi would be better - very modular."
"Or tortellini - modular with very good wrappers providing data protection."
"Or farfalle - modular with clearly defined interfaces that fit right into each other."
"Well, as long as it isn't cappelli (angel-hair pasta) - a shapeless mess with all sorts of loose ends sticking out..."
