Barilla Plus Penne Rigate 10 Pound Pasta
Penne is one of the most famous Italian pasta shapes.
Penne are a specialty of the Campania Region in southern Italy.
Penne, which means pen in Italian, gets its name from its shape.
Penne are tube-shaped with angled ends cut to resemble a quill or pen point.
They have ridges which allow them to hold more sauce.
Ridged penne are designed for meat, vegetable, cheese and oil or butter-based sauces.
They are also perfect for baked dishes made with sauce and cheese.
Penne all’Arrabbiata, penne with a spicy tomato sauce, is a favorite Italian dish.
