    Help! What is pappardelle?

    I'm making the recipe on the cover of the February issue of Food and Wine and I couldn't find pappardelle at the store. Is it like a wide egg noodle or fettucine?

    Thanks!

    Wide egg noodle would be a good sub, IMHO.

    "Papardelle pasta: 16mm wide" - !!!

    Hi Lauren -
    I feel your pain. I went throught the EXACT same problems when I tried to make a CL papardelle pasta dish:
    amusing thread about papardelle pasta here

    Your best bet is to try a gourmet foodie place like Williams & Sonoma or a large deli/fancy foods store. I have since seen papardelle at my regular grocery store (I think Safeway) but not all of them carry it.


    Good luck!

    Thanks Sneezles and Kuvy! I bought wide egg noodles, although not as wide as the papardelle, and am going with those!

    Thanks for your help!
