Barilla Linguine Pasta
Classic Blue Box

Classic Blue Box


Linguine, a close relative of Fettuccine, is made from long, flat strands of pasta, but is thinner and narrower. Linguine, which means “little tongues” in Italian, originated in the Liguria region of Italy. Throughout this area, the air is fragrant with salty ocean breezes and the aroma of delicious food cooking.

Barilla® Linguine is made with non-GMO ingredients. For more information, please read our position.
