Penne is one of the most famous Italian pasta shapes and is loved across Italy. Penne, which means 'pen' in Italian, gets its name from its shape. The tube-shape with angled ends was inspired by the quill of an old style ink pen.
Perfect for ...
The large diameter and ridges of Penne make it ideal for retaining sauces on the entire surface, inside and out! Try Penne with chunkier meat or vegetable-based sauces, and spicy tomato-based sauces. Penne is also a favourite in baked pasta dishes.

Our Chef’s tip
Salt will help flavour to the pasta but avoid adding oil to the water as your sauce won't stick.

Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil, and add salt to taste. We recommend 1 litre for every 100g of pasta.
Add pasta to boiling water. Stir occasionally.
Cook for the length of time indicated on the pack.
