This penne pasta comes with a small bag of amatriciana mix. Fry the mix up with some olive oil and tomato purée for a delicious pasta sauce. With the literal meaning of “quills” in Italian, the name describes this substantial pasta’s hollow and diagonal-cut shape, similar to an old fashioned pen tip. Penne comes smooth or ridged and is best served with meat, fish, or hearty vegetable dishes, can be baked in a casserole and is also suitable for frying. With a distinct and exquisite taste, this pasta is bound to please any palate.
About the Brand
In a quest to produce the finest olive oil in Tuscany, the Raffaelli family began to plant their first trees around the end of the 19c and were soon receiving acclaim from all fortunate enough to enjoy, leading to young Enrico’s plans to make their oil available to those outside the region. The methods have remained unchanged for four generations and remain true to their origins of a century ago: the finest olives picked by hand and brought to the presses with twenty four hours, extracted by cold pressing in mills with stone pounders and unfiltered, but stored for eighteen months in a temperature controlled environment to allow natural sedimentation.
Pasta: Durum wheat semolina, Water Condiment: tomato, red pepper, carrot, onion, garlic, celery
