Popular in Roman cuisine, Fettuccine is a distinct pasta shape resembling wide “ribbons.” Fettuccine pasta is best known for its feature in the classic buttery Parmesan dish of Fettuccine with Alfredo Sauce.

DeLallo Pasta comes from the town where pasta was born, a region near Naples, at the beginning of the Amalfi Coast. The art of making our pasta begins with the very best quality wheat. We carefully choose wheat with the highest gluten index, gluten content and protein content. All of these characteristics affect how the pasta cooks, as well as its taste and texture. The durum wheat is milled into coarse ground semolina flour and then carefully kneaded with cold, fresh, mineral-rich mountain spring water. We dry our pasta slowly at low temperatures to reproduce the traditional way of making pasta. This method respects the ingredients, preserving the pasta’s color, texture and aroma.

  • Made in Italy with an exclusive blend of the highest quality durum wheat.
  • Extruded with bronze dies for rough surface area made to capture sauces.
  • Authentic pasta with perfect al dente bite.
  • Long, flat pasta ribbons.

Kitchen and Usage Tips:

Fettuccine is a versatile long cut of pasta that is best dressed in fresh cream sauces that include small ingredients like prosciutto ham and peas, as well as artichokes, porcini mushrooms and seafood. Fettuccine pasta also shines in simple pasta recipes and sauces such as basil pesto and buttery herb sauces.
