September 15 – National Linguine Day


Today is National Linguine Day!

Linguine is a long, flat, narrow type of pasta which is wider than spaghetti, but not as wide as fettuccine.

It is most commonly used in seafood or pesto dishes such as linguine alle vongole (“linguine with clams”).

Linguine, which means “little tongues” in Italian, originated in the Liguria region of Italy. Take a moment to imagine you’re there at one of the local trattorias, taking in the wonderful aromas of good, hearty pasta dishes!

Linguine is a quick and easy dish to make for your family on September 15. If you do not feel like making the dish yourself, you can take your family out to a favorite Italian restaurant. Mention to the waitress or waiter that it’s National Linguine Day. Who knows? You might get a discount on your meal.

Enjoy National Linguine Day!
