    Linguine (pronounced lin-GWEE-nee) is a long cut of pasta flattened into an elliptical shape. From the region of Liguria in Northern Italy, Linguine translates to “little tongues” in English. These long strands of pasta are popularly paired with ingredients from the region like fresh basil pesto, seafood and simple tomato sauces.

    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.
    • Cooks up with the perfect al dente bite.
    • Long strands of flattened elliptical shaped pasta.

    Kitchen and Usage Tips:

    Linguine is famous for the prized Italian classic—Linguine alle Vongole, or Linguine with Clams—yet this long cut of pasta shines in a number of applications. Linguine is great paired with simple butter or olive oil sauces, rich tomato sauces, primavera-style vegetable sauces and herbaceous pesto. Our favorite Linguine recipe is a simple creation of sautéed zucchini, shrimp and Parmesan cheese with a kiss of fresh lemon juice.
