Penne are probably the most popular tubular pasta types around. Penne makes excellent and versatile pasta for many applications because of the very practical design. The angle cut of the end makes a large surface area for sauce to fall into and be drawn up the tube which means they are great for pairing with thick tomato sauces, meat sauces, chunky vegetable sauces, and thick cream sauces.

Made with 100% superior quality durum wheat semolina that is high in protein and results in an al dente cooked pasta texture
Garofalo pasta has a rough porous surface due to the dough passing through a bronze die to form each shape, allowing the sauce to stick and absorb into the cooked pasta giving a delightful eating Experience!
The word Penne means "quills" and refers to straight tubes of pasta cut diagonally at the ends (like a quill pen). Rigate means "ridges" which helps hold more sauce on the pasta than the smooth penne type.
