arithmetic – What’s a Good Pasta Quantity™?

This puzzle is impressed by JLee’s What’s a Phrase/Phrase™ collection and the next “Quantity” variants. (Really, I would initially tried to create a extra unique puzzle utilizing the identical thought, but it surely became one other one in all these. Sigh. Possibly the kinds of numbers given lend this considerably extra novelty.)

If a constructive actual quantity obeys a particular rule, I name it a Good Pasta Quantity™. Listed here are some examples:

A very good, strong pasta! Yeah! You’re a horrible cook dinner
$6sqrt{6}$ $3sqrt{5}$
$6$ $8$
$3sqrt{6}$ $6sqrt{3}$
$frac{3sqrt{2}+sqrt{6}}{2}$ $frac{3sqrt{6}+sqrt{2}}{2}$
$3sqrt{50-22sqrt{5}}$ $3sqrt{50+22sqrt{5}}$
$9sqrt{3}-3sqrt{15}$ $18sqrt{3}-6sqrt{15}$
$frac{42sqrt{6}}{23}$ $frac{56sqrt{6}}{19}$
$frac{15sqrt{6}-18sqrt{3}+135sqrt{2}-162}{14}$ $frac{15sqrt{30}-18sqrt{15}+135sqrt{10}+30sqrt{6}-162sqrt{5}-36sqrt{3}+270sqrt{2}-384}{14}$

There are a lot of extra Good Pasta Numbers™ not proven above, however solely a finite quantity.

Which numbers make an excellent pasta™?

Be aware:

There’s nothing hidden within the flavortext apart from a really refined connection (probably not a clue); this actually is only a regular “What’s a _______” puzzle. I like making my puzzles enjoyable to learn. Additionally, the property is restricted to the numbers themselves, and never any particular illustration of the aforementioned numbers.
