Penne Rigate from Il Pastaio Di Gragnano are made with the rigorously selected durum wheat semolina that is mixed with water from Gragnano. Penne Rigate are one of Italy's most popular cuts. Penne are derived from penna, the Italian word for pen, and they come in two forms, liscio or rigato. Penne Rigate has a wide tube with ridges on the outside.
Penne Rigate pair perfectly with vegetable sauces, or tomato-based sauce like the puttanesca sauce, or pesto. The shape is also good for making pasta salad.
