Egg Tagliatelle

Being Italian and gluten-free can sometimes be a little tricky, especially when it comes to pasta. I was flipping through La Cucina Italiana recently when I saw a picture of this egg tagliatelle covered in a delicious sauce. I tried it that night and it was amazing. It looks and feels just like tagliatelle. As much as I love zoodles, especially in summer, sometimes I feel like I need something else and this egg pasta really filled me up without the effects of too much gluten. It can take a little while to make because you have to cook the eggs in batches, roll and cut, but it’s definitely worth it.

For this recipe, I’ve made a simple salmon and cherry tomato sauce but you can use any sauce really. A simple tomato sauce, pesto or mushroom sauce is equally as delicious.
