Today, September 15th, is National Linguine Day.
Linguine is a type of pasta. The name literally translates as "little tongues" from the Italian.
The pasta originated from Genoa, Italy, and consists of long, thin, flat strips of pasta. Usually in the region of 4mm in diameter, it is thicker than spaghetti but thinner than fettucine.
Traditionally, linguine is served with seafood and pesto, but there is no reason why it couldn't be used in other dishes.
Like all pastas, this is served with a sauce. Whilst pasta is a simple recipe, alterations can be made to make it wholemeal or gluten-free.
