DeLallo Tagliatelle is an artisan egg pasta made in Northern Italy with the best durum wheat and farm-fresh eggs. Golden in hue with a flat ribbon-like appearance, these traditional noodles are extruded with bronze dies for a rougher, surface-capturing texture. Tagliatelle noodles are swirled into nests for convenience when cooking and serving.

Rich and hearty, our Tagliatelle nests are ready to take on your favorite pasta dishes. These long flat ribbons are perfect for hearty meat sauces and creamy cheese sauces—even simpler sauces of butter or olive oil and fresh herbs.

Kitchen and Usage Tips:

Tagliatelle is a long, flat pasta cut that shines in so many different pasta recipes. It is a hearty egg pasta that stands up to decadent creamy sauces and chunky meat sauces, like Bolognese. Tagliatelle shines in simple sauces too—sauces of butter or olive oil with fresh herbs and vegetables. We love serving our Spinach Tagliatelle nests with a lush garlicky cream sauce—something like an Alfredo sauce but with more zip and the addition of sweet, creamy mascarpone cheese.
