The food is most popular in the West and is only available in a few restaurants in Italy. If you’re wondering, fettuccine is made up of long strands. It is not to be confused with Spaghetti or Linguine. Because Fettuccine is a wider pasta. Alfredo pasta is one of the best things you can make with Fettuccine (obviously). This type of pasta, however, isn’t just for Alfredo sauce. It goes well with chicken and a variety of seafood.



Lasagna is a popular staple food among Americans and many others around the world. And, as you may have guessed, Lasagna is an Italian dish that is one of the best casserole dishes you will ever eat. This pasta has a wide and flat shape. You won’t like this pasta unless it’s made with all of the ingredients in Lasagna. Cheese, various types of sauces, and meat are some of the most popular toppings for Lasagna.



Rigatoni is similar to Penne in shape. The only distinction is that Rigatoni will not have angled cuts at the ends like Penne. Rigatoni is a tube-shaped kind of pasta that is typically baked. This is another popular date night pasta, which goes well with tomato sauces and meat. However, if you want to stick with what you want, you can try many recipes for Rigatoni that are available online.
