    Where do you find the tagliatelle pasta? Because of digestive issues I have Im not able to eat most pastas, was recently told to try this type of pasta as its wider than fetticini yet thinner than lasagna noodles as the tagliatelle is thinner in thickness . But have not been able to find this in my local stores, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

      I don’t remember where I bought it as it was a long time ago. I guess you could call around- try an Italian deli.

    Thanks for replying so quick. Due to my health the last 4 yrs I’ve been home bound unless I was inpatient or going to doctors appts. Had to have a g-tube ( feeding tube placed surgically ) placed permentantly July 2013 which has helped greatly to improve my health and is teaching my stomach to accept food once again and slowly gain weight. ( a good thing as I was 100 lbs under weight ) So while I’ m recouping I’ ve been doing a lot of baking & cooking, my biggest stress release. LOL wanted to research and see how I could change / tweek my recipes or come up with some new ones. I can’ t thank all of the many food bloggers out there.
    Anyway I asked hubby if we could go to Dollar Tree & Big Lots ( 2 stores really close to home ) you never know what you might find, I found tagliatelle pasta in 1 lb bags, I got 6 bags at $ 1.50 ea instead of $ 6-8 for an 8 oz bag online. So with my find I’ m making you tagliatelle with mushroom sauce tonite for dinner.
