The pesto is blended, the shrimp is boiled. What’s left is for you to add the most important ingredient — linguine. It’s  September 15, National Linguine Day!

Linguine, which means “little tongues” in Italian, has an ancient lineage among pasta. Along with its cousin, fettuccine, the signature linguine shape started appearing in bowls across Italy’s Liguria region almost 400 years ago.

Linguine goes well with pesto and seafood, breaking the monotony of the customary red and meat-based sauces. For an easy meal, cook some fresh linguine in salted water until the pasta is al dente. Drain, then add extra virgin olive oil and top  off with fresh basil and parmesan or pecorino cheese. Yes, it’s all carbs but it’s also all good! So, today, get your twirl on but make sure you’ve got your napkin handy.

NATIONAL LINGUINE DAY ACTIVITIES

  1. Make homemade pasta

    Once you see how easy it is to make homemade pasta, you’ll wonder why you haven’t been doing it all along! To make proper linguine, you’ll need a pasta press. Start with a cup of flour and two eggs, hand mix, and in no time, you’ll see your own pasta taking shape.

  2. Let your hair down in Liguria

    To throw a truly authentic party, try giving it a Ligurian theme, named after the region that gave the world linguine. Include some local drinks like vermentino or sciacchetrà — and of course some heaping portions of linguine — and you and your guests can jetset to Genoa without an airplane ticket!

  3. Serve it up family-style

    Take a barbecue break and create a fun evening eating linguine, family-style. Have some people over, get everyone to help with the meal, then, sit around a table laden with your linguine-based, Italian feast for a fun, get-together with friends.
