    You would be just substituting one type of pasta for another.Why fret about it ? It's no big deal.

    Yes. It'll just be a different shape and texture in your mouth but the taste will be the same.

    I do it all the time, its all pasta after all. I vary the pasta shapes that I use, just for a variety in my meals. My current favorite one for dishes with sauce poured over, is Linguine.

    Of course but then you'll have ziti instead of spaghetti but as far as the taste it'll taste the same

    You can even made noodles out of vegetables such as squash or spaghetti squash.

      Spaghetti squash really does mimic the texture and taste of pasta spaghetti. (I was quite surprised to find this out.)

    Yes...both are semolina wheat pasta. In fact...you can substitute pretty much anything in the pasta family.

    Sure. It'll taste much the same and you may just prefer the way the sauce clings to that particular shape. The only real exception I could think of is spaghetti al olio which really wouldn't taste right with any other shape.
