In Italy, the first pasta shapes were made by hand with simple tools. Fettuccine are made from flat sheets of pasta cut into ribbon-shaped strands (fettucce). The origin of fettuccine is difficult to trace because it is available in several regions of Italy and known by different names. Fettuccine, meaning "little ribbons" in Italian, is one of the oldest and most common pastas. This long and flat pasta is suitable for a wide variety of sauces and uses– spicy, seafood, hearty meat or rich cream sauces – for a truly authentic Italian meal.

The thickness of Fettuccine means it can withstand extremely robust sauces. Try it with dairy-based, oil-based, or tomato-based sauces, and with sauces combined with meat, vegetables, seafood, or cheese.
