We are constantly adding seasonal and new flavours to our range of Long Pasta. You have decided that kale, spinach, fresh herb and black summer truffle will stay on our long pasta menu and that is perfectly fine with us.
Angel HairAll of our homemade pasta is made with semolina flour which is a legal requirement in Italy. The use of semolina is especially important for making our angel hair pasta as it is one of the finest strands of pasta in the list of long pasta under the heading ‘spaghetti’.
BucatiniBucatini is a really long strand of macaroni, like a straw. It’s good to keep in mind the ‘straw’ analogy because Bucatini is not suitable for thin sauces. It is often very difficult to find bucatini pasta in the supermarkets and we believe that The Pasta Maker is the only one making it for you here in Brevard County, Florida.
FettuccineIt is thought that fettuccine originated in the Eternal City of Rome. The word fettuccine comes from the Italian word for small slices, ‘fettucce‘. Fettuccine is similar to the more flat and wide ‘tagliatelle’ from the northern Italian region of Emilia-Romagna and is arguably one of the most popular pasta shapes.
LinguineLinguine looks like thin, narrow elliptical strands of spaghetti and is often referred to as ‘flat spaghetti’. It comes from the Liguria region of Italy where you will often find it served in a traditional Genovese pesto sauce made from locally grown basil, pine nuts, Pecorino cheese, olive oil and garlic.
SpaghettiThe word spaghetti comes from the Italian word to describe ‘little strings’. These ‘little strings’ are long, rounded and there are a whole host of different sizes in the spaghetti family.
Tuscana PiciPici are also referred to as ‘pinci’ and originate from the beautiful Tuscan town of Siena where it is normally served with a robust, meaty sauce or chunky vegetable sauce. You would expect to see more sauce than pasta when you serve this dish.
