It's wider than spaghetti but it can't touch fettuccine, so it must be linguine! This flat pasta, which comes from a word that means "little tongues," is originally from the Campania region of Italy.

Linguine is usually served with seafood and pesto. In fact, the most popular use of this lengthy pasta is linguine alle vongole, meaning linguine with clams. This pasta is also bulkier and denser than spaghetti, so you have to cook it just a bit longer.
