September 15: National Linguine Day

Linguine (often misspelled “Linguini”) is a long, flat, narrow type of pasta most common in seafood or pesto dishes such as linguine alle vongole (“linguine with clams”).

Linguine, which means “little tongues” in Italian, originates from the Liguria region of Italy.

The average person in Italy eats more than 51 pounds of pasta every year. The average person in North America eats about 15-1/2 pounds of pasta per year.

Take a moment to imagine you’re at Muriale’s Restaurant, taking in the wonderful aromas of good, hearty pasta dishes!

Buon appetito!
