Linguine (pronounced lin-GWEE-nay), Italian for "little tongues", is a narrow, flat pasta resembling a cross between spaghetti and fettuccini. Linguine works well with almost any type of sauce, though is often paired with white or red clam sauce or cream-based sauces.
It is often mis-spelled as linguini.
As with other pastas, it is paired with certain sauces and foods that are enhanced by the pasta's ability to hold onto the best amount of sauce or ingredients.
Linguine pasta is flat and long and resembles spaghetti. It cooks faster than fettucine
