Trenette noodles are similar to fettuccini, only narrower. They are tasty with pesto sauce, flavored with cheeses or with a simple tomato sauce. Homemade Trenette noodles are easy to make with the Imperia Pasta Machine and the Imperia Pasta Machine Trenette Attachment.

Boil the Trenette in plenty of salted water, drain when slightly underdone, flavor with cheese and add a few spoonfuls of their cooking water, cover with the sauce, mix and serve hot.
