A form of pasta like fettuccine and trenette, but elliptical in section rather than flat, wider than spaghetti but not as wide as fettuccine. The name linguine means “little tongues” in Italian. Linguine is also called trenette or bavette. A thinner version of linguine is called linguettine.
This pasta is best paired with creamy sauces such as Alfredo sauce, the surface area of the pasta’s flat shape enables it to stand up against the heft of a rich sauce. Also pairs well with different proteins like seafood. Exclusive Italian egg pasta di Campofilone.
