Tagliatelle, one of our favorite pastas

Updated: May 21, 2021

They say Tagliatelle was invented in 1487 by Maestro Zafirano, a cook from the village of Bentivoglio in Italy. This village is in the North East part of Italy in the city of Bologna in the Emilia-Romagna region.

Everyone in my home love these traditional, flat, ribbon-looking pasta.

You can make the pasta at home, but most days, I don't have the time. This one I got from Whole Foods. We love pasta with sautéed asparagus and other vegetables like corn, olives and broccoli. We always quick cook our mushrooms in an air-fryer. The Tree Oyster mushroom is my daughter's favorite.

You should give your sauce some special treatment. Cook or heat it in a separate pan. Mine has marinara and pesto, because that's how I like my sauce.

I don't make it all in one pan. So, I cooked the pasta separately, then put it on on separate dishes, one for each family member. Poured the sauce on the top. Then sprinkled some Parmesan and fresh black pepper.

Just to make it more colorful and flavorful, I also put another sauce made of tomato and red pepper. That's not authentic at all, but it is well-liked!
