The Penne Rigate from Mancini are made with Durum Wheat grown in their own fields in the Marche region. Mancini only uses traditional bronze extruding machines, giving the artisanal pasta a rough texture with many pores which help to better absorb the pasta sauce when finishing the dish. Mancini Penne Rigate are also slowly dried at a low temperature for up to 44 hours which helps the protein structure in the pasta stay strong allowing for a better al dente texture!

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

Directions: use 6 quarts of water for every 1 lb of pasta. Bring water to a boil. Add sea salt to taste. Add pasta to boiling water. Stir from time to time. Drain, reserving about 1 cup of the cooking water. Transfer the pasta to the pan where you have your sauce. Toss vigorously over medium heat until combined, about 2 minutes. If the pasta looks dry, add a small amount of the cooking water, and toss until it looks moist. Garnish with your favorite Parmigiano Reggiano DOP, Grana Padano DOP or Trentingrana DOP and serve immediately.

Cooking time: 7-9 minutes.

Founded by Mariano Mancini in 1938, for three generations, the family-run Pastificio Mancini has produced high-quality pasta from durum wheat grown in their own fields in Marche, a region in central Italy.
