    Product Weight:
    1 lbs.


    Whole-Wheat Penne Pasta, or Penne Rigate, is named for its long tube shape and angular ends, a “pen” shape. This well-known cut draws in sauces into its hollow body. This, along with its outer ridges, make Penne Rigate pasta a perfect cut for fresh tomato sauces with mozzarella and basil. Penne pasta pairs perfectly with the beloved tomato-cream sauce, Penne alla Vodka.

    DeLallo Organic Whole-Wheat Pasta begins with a high-quality blend of Italian organic durum wheat. Wheat is chosen for its beautiful color, wonderful aroma and high protein content. All of these characteristics create a pasta with ideal appearance, flavor and al dente texture when cooked. This wheat is ground into whole durum wheat flour, then kneaded with rich mountain spring water for everything you love about traditional pasta, but with the benefits of whole grains. Pasta is extruded with bronze dies for a rough surface texture perfect for capturing sauces. True to tradition, we dry our pasta slowly at low temperatures to retain the pasta’s taste, texture and aroma.

    Kitchen and Usage Tips:

    Penne pasta is a versatile shape starring in everything from rich cream sauces and heartier tomato sauces to chunky vegetable sauces and cold pasta salads. Penne Rigate can be enjoyed simply with butter- or oil-based sauces or baked up in a cheesy baked pasta recipe. We love it with creamy Vodka sauce and a fresh-tomato pasta sauce featuring mozzarella and chopped basil leaves from the garden.
