The Shape

One of the most famous Italian pasta shapes, and British favourites, penne translates to the word “pen” and gets its name from its shape – a short cylinder-shaped pasta with angled edges. Penne complements every sauce and works exceptionally well when paired with a chunkier sauce. By extruding through bronze dies, the pasta has a rougher texture allowing for even more sauce adhesion.
