Linguine Pasta ~ So Uncelebrated... Not!


Linguine originated in Genoa in the Liguria region of Italy. Linguine is a pasta something like Fettuccine. For some people, the name may sound a little bit strange. It may be because the name linguine means "little tongues" in Italian. 

It seems that when it comes to linguine most think of 'Linguine with clam sauce' or 'Linguine with Shrimp'. It doesn't have to be. It can be served with a basic Marinara sauce minus the clams and shrimp. It can be used with many meats and served with buttery pesto as well as tomato sauces.


In fact, if you want to make an Asian dish that asks for rice noodles and you don't have any or can't find any to buy, just be brainy and use Linguine.
