De Cecco Pennoni rigati pasta 500G

The Pennoni Rigati are a larger variant of the classic penne and, thanks to their size, can at best keep the spices. The term penne in the Italian language refers to the goose pen holder that was used for writing in ancient times and that was cut diagonally to give a tip with a thin stroke. The format, which is obtained from a tube of pasta, smooth or lined, 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 the fresh pasta in a stick-shaped shape without crushing it, in a variable format between 3 and 5 centimeters (half penne or penne). The document kept in the central archives of the State of Rome states: “Until now it has not been possible to obtain the diagonal cut with hand scissors, a method that was not only too slow and expensive, but also had the disadvantage of producing one irregular cutting and chopping of the dough '. Pennoni Rigati are ideal for the preparation of baked pastries and are particularly well seasoned with meat sauces, vegetables or pesto. Available in 500 g packs.
