Barilla Tri Color Penne Pasta


Brighten Up Your Pasta Recipe with Tri Colored Vegetable Penne

A colorful version of a pasta salad favorite, Tri-Color Penne combines our semolina with delicious spinach and tomato pasta. Penne, which means "pen" in Italian, gets its name from its shape. Their tube-shape with angled ends was inspired by the quill of an old style ink pen. This tri color pasta version packs in more nutrition and flavor, especially when cooked al dente.

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

Perfect for ...

The large diameter and ridges of tri color penne make it ideal for retaining sauces, inside and out. Try it with marinara or garlic alfredo sauce, or a simple olive oil dressing for the perfect tri color penne pasta salad.

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.
