Bavette [baˈvette] is a type of pasta, a narrower version of tagliatelle. It is a ribbon noodle, similar to spaghetti, that has a flat section and a slightly convex shape. This type of pasta originates in Genoa and are the most typical type of Ligurian[1] pasta cut.[2] Although it can be disputed, Bavette is one of the more ancient types of long pasta.[3]

Bavette is most frequently paired with traditional pesto sauces, but also pairs well with vegetables.[2]
