Penne rigate is a type of pasta very well appreciated throughout all Italy. Their main feature is the characteristic shape, which looks like a “pennino” (fountain pen). It is famous for being so versatile thanks to its “design”, which allows it to collect the condiments properly, and the deep grooves running on the outer surface, which allows the condiment to stick to the pasta. Made with only 100% organic whole wheat rice flour following the artisan slow drying process at low temperature, it preserves all the organoleptic characteristics and is perfect for main courses with meat-based sauces, or combined with vegetable-based condiments such as peppers, courgettes and artichokes. Try it with Rustichella d’Abruzzo “alla Arrabbiata” organic sauce.
Cooking time: 7-9 minutes.
Rustichella D’Abruzzo history began in 1924. Today Gianluigi and Stefania Peduzzi proudly continue their grandfather’s Abruzzan tradition using only top quality durum wheat semolina, bronze dies and pure mountain water to achieve that perfect texture and taste that made Rustichella D’Abruzzo the most recognized premium pasta, used by top chefs and available in delicatessen shops all over the world.
The drying process is carried out slowly at low temperatures, sometimes for as long as 50 hours at around 35/40 degrees, unlike industrial pasta where drying is carried out at 90 degrees for 4/5 hours.
