NATIONAL LINGUINE DAY
Observed annually on September 15th, National Linguine Day is a favorite of young and old alike.
From the Liguria region of Italy, linguine means “little tongues” in Italian. Made from durum semolina flour, linguine is one of the world’s oldest kinds of pasta. Fettuccine and linguine developed around 400 years ago. While both are thin, flat noodles, linguine is more narrow and elliptical in shape causing it to be a more delicate pasta. As a result, linguine is paired with thinner, lighter sauces.
