A plate of linguine and prawns

Linguine is a form of pasta in long slender flat strips. The name means "little tongues" in the Italian language. Linguine is slightly wider than spaghetti, and is often used in the place of it. Whilst spaghetti traditionally accompanies meat and tomato dishes, linguine is often served with seafood or pesto.

Textured fungal protein can be shaped textured, coloured and flavoured into reasonable facsimiles of tomatoes, steak, potatoes, linguine and broccoli but the meats tend to be truer than the vegetables.
