Barilla Mini Penne Pasta


As with the larger version Penne, Mini Penne resembles an old-style quill pen. This shape is enjoyed throughout Northern Italy and in Campania, where it is prized for its wonderful versatility and its ability to absorb and retain sauce on its surfaces, inside and out.

Barilla® Mini Penne is made with non-GMO ingredients. For more information, please read our position.

Perfect for ...

The ridges of Mini Penne make it ideal for retaining sauces on the entire surface, inside and out! Try Mini Penne with chunkier meat or vegetable-based sauces, refined dairy-based sauces such as mushroom cream sauce, or even tomato sauces. Mini Penne is also delicious in baked casserole dishes, known as “pasta al forno".

Our Chef’s tip

Add a generous pinch of sea salt to the cooking water to enhance the pasta’s flavor.

Avoid adding oil to the water as it prevents sauce from clinging to the pasta.

Add contents of package to boiling water. Stir gently.


Return to a boil. For authentic "al dente" pasta, boil uncovered, stirring occasionally for 7 minutes. For more tender pasta, boil an additional 1 minute.
