Tagliatelle is a flat ribbon pasta which is native to Naples, the home of pasta dishes. Spinach tagliatelle tossed in mustard and brandy flavoured cheese sauce with the freshness of mushrooms and broccoli is simply marvelous. The addition of cheese spread to the sauce makes it of good thick coating consistency. Like the city of Naples, this sauce is mellow and sophisticated. This sauce also works well using plain fettuccine or spaghetti.
