September 15, National Linguine Day - Nutrition and Recipes

Linguine is a form of pasta – like fettuccine and trenette, but elliptical in section rather than flat. It is wider than spaghetti, about 4 mm, but not as wide as fettuccine. Linguine is also called trenette or bavette.

Linguine originated in Genoa and the Liguria region of Italy. Linguine are often served with seafood or pesto. Linguine is typically available in both white flour and whole-wheat versions.
