NATIONAL LINGUINE DAY | SEPTEMBER 15
On September 15th, National Linguine Day fills the dinner menu at home and restaurants across the country.
From the Liguria region of Italy, linguine means “little tongues” in Italian. Made from durum semolina flour, linguine is one of the world’s oldest kinds of pasta. Fettuccine and linguine both developed around 400 years ago. While both are thin, flat noodles, linguine is narrower and more elliptical in shape. As a result, linguine produces a more delicate pasta. To avoid breakage, pair linguine with thinner, lighter sauces.
However, lighter sauces don’t limit linguine’s flavor profile. In fact, linguine recipes offer a wide variety of sauces. Whether you prefer spicy pasta or seafood, linguine offers a nice base. It compliments herb and butter sauces nicely, too. When adding fresh vegetables, linguine allows the bright colors to shine. Pesto lovers rave over linguine. Another ingredient that favors linguine is earthy mushrooms.
HOW TO OBSERVE NATIONAL LINGUINE DAY
If you enjoy pasta but haven’t cooked with linguine, give it a try. Try new sauces and fresh ingredients. Share recipes or test out new ones. No matter your preference, lightly seasoned, spice, or taste of the ocean, linguine will satisfy your craving.
Invite some friends over and open a bottle of wine. Break open the pasta and get cooking!
Enjoy these delicious linguine recipes and use #NationalLinguineDay to post on social media.

I’m sure you thought twice before you Penned that reply. I’d be a shell of my former self if my wife saw me ogling that.
Better yet, maybe you can get your wife to model some of those items.
Can National Fusilli Day be far behind?
I think I’ll make lemon basil chicken with linguine for dinner tonight. I needed some inspiration.
I thought at first that it said “National Lingerie Day.”
That’s Valentine’s Day, right?
