My wife’s family celebrates Palm Sunday via a never ending feast of homemade Fettucine (made via the standard Imperia pasta machine). The homemade fettucine are delicate and wonderfully light (“light” is something you hear lots of people say about homemade pasta, I agree but I’m not sure it’s wholly accurate). My wife’s mother serves the Fettucine with a simple tomato sauce and toasted breadcrumbs (grated Roman cheese is present as well).

Fettucine is a classic pasta shape and known throghout the world. Fettucine is a flat thick noodle and is sometimes referred to as tagliatelle in other parts of Italy. The Scordo Pasta Challenge continues on…
