Linguine, also called Bavette or Trenette, first saw the light in Genoa and have a squashed spaghetti shape. They are the long Ligurian pasta par excellence. Born for traditional pesto, they go so well with all vegetable and fish based sauces.
Linguine are one of the long semolina flour pasta shapes that bring out the best in a sauce. Thanks to their squashed and slightly convex shape they are, in fact, perfect to hold the sauce, conveying all the nuances of the flavours.
Particularly appetizing also with just butter curls, Bavette go superbly with Genoese pesto, rich with all the fragrance of basil, one of the most important herbs in the Mediterranean culinary tradition.
