Linguine (or linguini) is a form of long pasta shape, similar to spaghetti, but wider, with an elliptical section. Also known in Italy as “trenette”, they are typical of Genoa gastronomic tradition, where they use to season them with pesto sauce. Anyway, they are also appreciated in the rest of Italy. For example, they are perfect if combined with any seafood seasoning.
Fun fact: most people around the world can’t cook our famous “pasta al dente”. Pasta should be cooked in a large pot of boiling salted water, at a rolling boil, following the cooking time reported on the package, and drained when still a little firm, not mushy. According to what nutritionists say, Pasta al dente is much more digestible.
