Tagliatelle with Ragù alla Bolognese



Tagliatelle with Ragù alla Bolognese

From Chef Rosario:

The title tagliatelle comes from the Italian verb “tagliare,” which implies “to chop.” The title fettuccine comes from the noun “fettucce,” which implies skinny slices or ribbons. What’s the distinction? Tagliatelle are well-liked within the area of Emilia Romagna and Fettuccine in Lazio. Nevertheless, the 2 sorts of pasta are very related and fairly interchangeable in recipes. Each area of Italy has its personal phrases of endearment for its pasta, and naturally, that features the names and nicknames of pasta shapes.

Bolognese sauce is understood in Bologna as Ragù alla Bolognese. It’s usually served with tagliatelle and never with spaghetti. The unique recipe was archived in 1982 within the Bologna Chamber of Commerce by the Italian Culinary Academy.
