Wikipedia: Fettuccine
Fettuccine (Italian pronunciation: [fettutˈtʃiːne]; literally “little ribbons” in Italian; sing. Fettuccina) is a type of pasta popular in Roman and Tuscan cuisine. It is a flat thick pasta made of egg and flour (usually one egg for every 100 g of flour), wider than but similar to the tagliatelle typical of Bologna.
