  • Linguine is a form of pasta. It is wider than spaghetti, about 6mm to 9mm, but not as wide as fettuccine. The name linguine means “little tongues” in Italian, where it is a plural of the feminine linguina. Linguine are also called trenette or bavette.
  • Linguine originated in Genoa and the Liguria region of Italy. Linguine alle vongole (linguine with clams) or Linguine ai gamberoni (linguine with prawns) are popular uses of this pasta.

Ingredients 2 or 4 people :

  • garlic
  • parsley
  • oil
