Fettuccine all'uovo con spinaci, a tasty variation of the classic Lasagna all'uovo, are made with the addition of tender leaf spinach to produce fragrant, imaginative dishes packed with flavour.
It is not easy to establish where this type of pasta originated from, which is popular all over Italy, albeit with different local names. Fettucine were probably originally from Lazio where they are the pride of all regional cooking.
Fettuccine are very versatile and so suitable for a variety of sauces. They are recommended in particular in pasta dishes with tomato and meat ragùs. They are also excellent for preparing fish-based sauces, especially shellfish

Farfalline (little butterflies), originally from northern Italy, are rectangular with a scalloped edge, pinched together in the centre.
The tiny, whimsical shape means they appeal to children in particular who associate them with the animal kingdom.
Thanks to the notched edge and the tiny curved wings, Farfalline are a perfect shape for hearty soups with croutons or vegetables cut into julienne strips.
This pasta can also be used in thick creamy or velvety soups.
