Pappardelle is a long flat pasta shape that is perfect for twisting around your fork, trapping sauce as you go. Its narrower cousin Tagliatelle is similar in length and use.
I like to make my own, about 55cm long and 1.8cm wide, using my Philips Pasta And Noodle Maker.
The machine imparts a roughness perfect for holding thicker sauces and meat. Tagliatelle is also perfect for lighter sauces showcasing eggs, cheese, nuts and vegetables.
My favourite way to prepare it however is by drowning it in a brown butter and sage sauce.
Or perhaps in a richer Crème Fraîche and cheese sauce.
Here are a couple more pasta shape and pasta recipe posts.
