Linguine recipes

Crab linguine

Crab linguine

By Angela Hartnett

A flattened spaghetti-like pasta. It’s best served with a medium-thick sauce that will cling well to its thin strands.

Buyer's guide

Substitute spaghetti if you can’t find linguine, though it’s available from most supermarkets either fresh or dried.


Cream-based sauces go well with linguine and it’s often served with seafood. Allow about 75g of pasta per person.
