Mafaldine, also known as Reginette (Italian for little queens) or simply Mafalda, is a type of ribbon-shaped pasta. It is flat and wide, usually about 1 cm (½ inch) in width, with wavy edges on both sides. It is prepared similarly to other ribbon-based pasta such as linguine and fettuccine. It is usually served with a more delicate sauce.

Mafaldine were named in honor of Princess Mafalda of Savoy (thus the alternative name "little queens").[1]
