De Cecco Pennette Lisce pasta 500g

The Penne Mezzane Lisce belong to the Penne Lisce family and differ from them in their slightly smaller diameter. The absence of scratches is offset by a surprising softness that gives sublime sensations to the palate. They are delicate and refined and maximally amplify aromas, flavors and fragrances. The term penne in the Italian language refers to the goose feather, which was previously used for writing and which was cut diagonally to give a tip with a thin line. The format, which is obtained from a smooth or striped noodle tube of variable length, has the characteristic diagonal cut that is typical of the pen. Penne is one of the few pasta shapes with a specific date of birth: In 1865 a pasta maker from San Martino d'Albaro (Genoa), Giovanni Battista Capurro, applied for and received a patent for a diagonal cutting machine. The patent was important because it made it possible to cut fresh pasta in the shape of a pen in a variable format between 3 and 5 centimeters (half penne or penne) without crushing it. We read in the document kept in the Central State Archives of Rome: 'Until now, the diagonal cut could only be achieved with hand scissors, a method that was not only too slow and expensive, but also had the disadvantage of making one irregular cut and crush the pastes '. Penne Mezzane Lisce are ideal for preparing dry pasta, seasoned with beef or pork ragout. They're also perfect for vegetable-based sauces like eggplant, peppers, zucchini, and artichokes, or for more whimsical recipes with salmon or vodka.
