Tagliatelle

Tagliatelle Pasta falls into the family of what is known as “cutters” (in Italian, “Tagliare”, means “to cut”), which is a group of pasta that are long and ribbon-like. Other members of the “cutters” family include tagliolini, tajarin, pappardelle, trenette and fettuccine. Tagliatelle hails from the Emilia-Romagna and Marche regions of Italy, where it has been loved for generations.

Legend states that tagliatelle was invented on the night of Annibale II Bentivoglio’s wedding to Lucrezia from the house of Este in 1487, by Lucrezia’s talented chef, after seeing her ribbon-like hairstyle. However, there is much speculation as to if this was actually true or a joke made up by humourist Augusto Majani in 1931.

One thing is absolutely certain, however. Bologna takes so much pride in their beloved tagliatelle that they have a solid gold instrument, demonstrating the correct dimensions of a piece of tagliatelle in their Chamber of Commerce (1 mm x 6 mm, for anyone curious). While we cannot guarantee our freshly made tagliatelle are precisely those dimensions, we can guarantee that they are a perfect complement

How to Cook Fresh Tagliatelle with us?

Cooking Time: 5 mins

  1. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil.
  2. Open the pasta pack and put the tagliatelle in the boiling water, stirring to separate any that stick, for 3- 4 minutes until ‘al-dente’ (check a strand before removing from the pan).
  3. Whilst the pasta cooks, put the sauce in a large pan, add 1-2 tbsp (20ml) of cooking water, cover with a lid and gently heat until steaming, once steaming, turn the heat off.
  4. Once cooked, use tongs to transfer the tagliatelle to the sauce. Toss together and then, you would usually garnish with pine nuts & parmesan. Buon appetito!
