7 Italian Tagliolini Recipes You Will Love!
Tagliolini is probably my favourite fresh egg pasta ribbon. Although I love wider ribbons like pappardelle, these often delicate egg-rich pasta strands are so delicious and flavourful. In fact, you can even eat them on their own just with some melted butter and grated cheese! However, if you’d like to have a taste of how this pasta is eaten here in Italy, check out these 7 Italian tagliolini recipes here on The Pasta Project.
Tagliolini v tagliatelle!
Most pasta lovers know tagliatelle but have you heard of tagliolini? As the name suggests there are some similarities between these two types of pasta. Both are egg pasta ribbons traditionally cooked from fresh. However, you can buy these pastas dried too, usually in nests. The main difference is in the cut or ‘taglia’. Tagliolini ribbons are narrower than their better known cousin! And often eaten with lighter more delicate sauces. If you’d like to read more about this pasta click this link to my tagliolini post.
