Fettuccine (pronounced [fettutˈtʃiːnə]; literally "little ribbons" in Italian; sing. Fettuccina) is a type of pasta popular in Roman and Tuscan cuisine. It is a flat thick noodle made of egg and flour (usually one egg for every 100 g of flour), wider than but similar to the tagliatelle typical of Bologna.[1] It is often eaten with sugo d'umido (beef ragù) and ragù di pollo (chicken ragù).[1]

Fettuccine is traditionally made fresh (either at home or commercially) but dried fettuccine can also be bought in shops.

Spinach fettuccine is made from spinach, flour, and eggs.
