Cooking with Linguine

Linguine is a type of pasta that originates from the Northern regions of Italy and is traditionally served with seafood or pesto. Flatter and wider than spaghetti noodles, it is perfect for dishes with rich sauces and succulent meats.

Here is a lovely twist on beloved pesto for spring. In Linguine with Spinach-Herb Pesto, baby spinach takes the place of most of the basil to give the sauce an earthy flavor. The thick, emerald sauce beautifully coats the flat noodles and serves up big flavor in every forkful.
