Difference between linguini and fettucini?!

Question: Difference between linguini and fettucini!?
This may seem like a silly question, but what is the real difference between linguine and fettuccine!? I know one pasta is thicker than the other, but are they used for different types of recipes!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Since linguine is narrower than fettuccine, it is more delicate!. You could use these interchangeably, if you have to!. Generally you match up the types of sauces and ingredients with the type of pasta!. You can use heavier sauces and chunkier ingredients with bigger pasta, and smooth, thinner sauces with delicate pasta!. For example, if you use chicken with fettuccine you can cut it in bigger chunks and add broccoli, if you use it with linguine you might want to chop everything smaller or shred it!. You also might want to use drained, thawed spinach instead of broccoli!.

Fettuccine is wider and flat, Linguine is like spaghetti but square not round!. The shapes of all pastas were designed to hold the sauce differently, the more aromatic (for the lack of a better term, ie; pestos and garlic and oil based sauces) pasta with less surface area would be used!. Cream sauces wider, like fettuccine, bow-ties etc!. tomato based sauces seem to work with all pastas across the board!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
