Barilla brings linguine bavette for all your Italian pasta recipes! Bavette are very thin, flat pasta strands with a slightly convex cross-section, much narrower in width than tagliatelle. The name literally means 'little threads' in italian, which explains the ribbon-like appearance of this pasta. This pasta will be best used in pesto sauces, in homage to their Ligurian origins. Fresh, herbal pestos made with leafy herbs like basil and parsley are a particularly popular pairing for bavette. This pack of 500 grams is plenty for a couple of meals.
