Today is National Linguine Day so we all headed to Olive Garden for dinner! And look who is here! Gram and Pop Pop!
We all love creamy pastas. Time for some Linguine Alfredo! No, not that Alfredo Linguini.
I was hoping Olive Garden would have a Linguine noodle that I could substitute for my Fettuccine noodles, but the only version they had was Whole Wheat Linguine. Eh, well, we tried. Guess we're turning this into Fettuccine Day instead.
Which got me to thinking, what's the difference between Linguine and Fettuccine. I thought it was just the width of the noodle.
Linguine - Made of flour and water, extruded (so you can't make it at home so easily), used with thin sauces, thinner in width than fettuccine.
Fettuccine - Made of flour and eggs, rolled (so you can make it fresh at home), used with thick sauces.
