Tagliatelle is one of many flat ribbon pastas. Tagliolini, linguine, pappardelle, and fettuccine noodles are also in this same category. The difference between all of these types of pasta is the width of the noodles. Tagliatelle is usually about 9.5 millimeters wide; wider than linguine but not as large as pappardelle. Tagliolini, however, is markedly thinner.
What are popular tagliatelle pasta recipes?
Whether you’re making a dish with spinach tagliatelle pasta or regular tagliatelle pasta, use a ragu sauce or a thick cream sauce. Tagliatelle Bolognese is an Italian staple. If you’re not in the mood for Tagliatelle Bolognese, pair these noodles with a creamy cheese sauce, vegetables such as mushrooms or peas, and chicken or seafood. (The alfredo sauce we all know and love is another reason why this type of pasta often gets confused for fettuccine noodles.)
