Linguine means little tongues in Italian, where it is a plural of the feminine linguina. A thinner version of linguine is called linguettine.

Linguine originated in Genoa and the Liguria region of Italy. It is typically available in both white flour and whole-wheat versions, with the latter usually being made in Italy. Linguine are often served with seafood or pesto, while spaghetti traditionally accompanies meat and tomato dishes.
