September 15th
National Linguini Day

I LOVE clams and linguini.... Here is the perfect recipe:
Oh gawd, now I'm drooling!!!

LINGUINE or LINGUINIThis pasta is accurately called linguine, its Italian name, but the word became Americanized to linguini. Show you’re a food connoisseur and use the original Italian! Originating in the Liguria region of northern Italy, linguine (lin-GWEE-nay), Italian for “little tongues,” is a narrow, flat version of round spaghetti (it is sometimes referred to as flat spaghetti). It is a narrower version of fettuccine

Linguine is often paired with white or red clam sauce, butter and cheese or cream sauces; but it is so versatile that it works with almost any type of pasta sauce. Pesto al Genovese (basil, pine nuts, Pecorino cheese, extra virgin olive oil and garlic) is popularly served with linguini; as is a sauce made of cream, peas and prosciutto.
