Italian Baccala Linguine is a delicious Easy Recipe. Dried Salt Cod cooked to perfection in a perfectly spiced tomato sauce, then tossed with your favourite al dent pasta. So good.
Ever since I made my mother-in-law’s Baccala and Chickpeas recipe, the Italian has been craving Baccala. So I decided to make this Delicious Baccala Linguine.
What does Baccala mean?
The direct translation is Dried Cod or as my father-in-law in jest would call his grandchildren when they were acting silly.
If you have never made or eaten baccala it is so much easier if you buy pre soaked baccala. All you have to do is cut it up and add it to your sauce.
How to make Baccala Linguine Recipe
- If you buy pre soaked Baccala no need to soak it yourself.
- In a large pan add olive oil, sliced grape tomatoes, fresh basil and parsley and spices.
- Cook for approximately 10 minutes.
- Add the cut up baccala and cook until tender.
- Toss with the cooked pasta and black olive slices, and serve immediately.
How to Soak Dried Baccala
- Place the dry Baccala in cold water, (make sure it’s covered).
- Change the water 2x a day and soak for 48 hours.

The flavours in this pasta are incredible! So good!
Hi Ashley, thanks so much.
I’ve never heard of baccala, nor know where I would buy it, but I love cod. It looks delicious!
Hi Amanda, you could probably find it in an Italian or Portuguese store. It is really good.
You can find it at a Spanish Market/Bodega.
We Puerto Ricans eat it (Bacalao) a lot.
Thanks Ramona. Have a great week.
