Linguine (/lɪŋˈɡwni/; Italian: [liŋˈɡwiːne]) is a type of pasta similar to fettuccine and trenette but elliptical in section rather than flat. It is about 4 millimetres (0.16 in) in width, which is wider than spaghetti but not as wide as fettuccine.[1][2] The name linguine means "little tongues" in Italian, where it is a plural of the feminine linguina.[3] A thinner version of linguine is called linguettine.[4] Linguine was traditionally served with sauces such as pesto but others such as tomato or fish based sauces are popular as well.[5] Linguine is typically available in both white flour and whole-wheat versions but was originally made with durum wheat.[6] Linguine originated in Italy and is based on more traditional pastas.[7]
