National Linguine Day

Today is dedicated to linguine, the flat Italian pasta that means "little tongues". It is similar to fettuccine, but a little narrower. Linguine originated in the Liguria region of Italy, where Genoa is the capital, most likely sometime after mechanical pasta presses were invented in the 1600's. Most often it accompanies pesto or seafood, which makes sense because it originated on coastal lands. It pairs well with light sauces that are cream or oil based.

How to Observe National Linguine Day

Celebrate the day by eating some linguine. You could make one of the most popular linguine dishes, linguine con vongole in bianco, which is linguine with white clam sauce. You could probably find some good linguine in Genoa, but if you can't travel there, there's a good chance you'll find some great linguine at one of the best Italian restaurants in the United States.
