Linguine is Italian for small tongues. After spaghetti, linguine pasta is among the most well-known and widely consumed long dry pasta varieties. Typically, only water and durum wheat semolina are used to make this pasta. This pasta design originates from the Liguria region of Italy, which is well-known for its proximity to the ocean and delectable cuisine. Although linguine is frequently served with pesto, it also goes well with fish sauces, oil-based sauces, and stir-fries. There are other varieties as well, though. similar to how Americans pioneered the new practice of serving this pasta with a rich, creamy gravy sauce called Alfredo. Italians sometimes contend that because Alfredo sauce is not an Italian meal, it cannot go with any Italian food, yet Americans typically love their linguine pasta this way.
