Prawn Linguine

Linguine Gamberoni/ Prawn Linguine

Linguine gamberoni is a flavorful Italian recipe. Linguine is a type of pasta similar to fettuccine and trenette but elliptical in section rather than flat. It is about 4 millimetres in width, which is wider than spaghetti but not as wide as fettuccine. The name linguine means “little tongues” in Italian, where it is a plural of the feminine linguina.

I used this linguine in this recipe.

Gamberoni means prawns in Italian. You can also use spaghetti instead of linguine. I also added chicken stock in this recipe. You can also use shrimp/fish stock in this.
