Penne is one of the most famous Italian pasta shapes, and is a specialty of the Campania Region in Southern Italy. Penne, which means "pen" in Italian, gets its name from its tube shape with angled ends cut to resemble a quill or pen point. Penne have ridges, which allow them to hold more sauce.

ProteinPLUS™ pairs well with tomato-based sauces and sauces with lots of fresh vegetables. Oil-based sauces work well with all ProteinPLUS™ shapes.

Cook Barilla ProteinPLUS™ in boiling water 11 minutes, then drain and serve according to the recipe directions. For more tender pasta, boil an additional minute. Due to its higher protein content ProteinPLUS™ takes several extra minutes to cook than traditional pasta.
