Tagliatelle (pronounced tah-lyah-TELL-eh)



This week's recipe features a round-eight word in Thursday's Scripps National Spelling Bee finals. I know that's a bizarre way to plan one's meals, but what can I say, tagliatelle was fresh in my mind when I visited the pasta shop yesterday.

Here is the recipe that was inspired by watching 3 hours of the world's best middle school spellers:

TAGLIATELLE WITH POPPY SEEDS

Ingredients

1/2 lb fresh tagliatelle
1/4 cup butter
Coarse salt and fresh ground black pepper
1/2 tbsp toasted poppy seeds

Instructions

Boil the pasta in salted water for about 5 min.

Drain and place in a large warmed serving bowl. Add the other ingredients and toss well.

Serve immediately.

Fun fact: "Tagliatelle" refers to the width of the noodles — 1/2 inch. (Pappardelle is 3/4 inch and tagliarini, 1/2 inch.)

Can you use it a sentence please?

Best,

kh
