They are ideal with all kinds of sauces. They go well with both traditional condiments and new and imaginative flavors. For a quick and tasty first course, try them together with pancetta, with a sprinkling of freshly ground pepper and pecorino. If you are looking for an idea with a Mediterranean flavor, let yourself be conquered by a simple vegetable sauce, such as a condiment based on aubergines, cherry tomatoes and capers.
We also tried them with our ARRIGHI SAUCES and they are super because they have an excellent cooking resistance. You can also be inspired by the many RECIPES in the dedicated section or try these recipes:

DID YOU KNOW THAT: This type of pasta is directly linked to the shape of the fountain pen in use until the 1950s. The pasta called "penne" was born in 1865 in San Martino d'Albaro (Genoa), where the Genoese pasta maker Giovanni Battista Capurro patented a machine capable of uniformly cutting the pasta diagonally into pieces from 3 to 5 cm without crushing the tips . This innovation represented a decisive step towards the development of modern pasta making techniques.
Another great advance of the pasta industry was the possibility of digging lines directly on the pasta, such as on these Mezze Penne Rigate, thus allowing the sauce to be retained.
Thin or striped, the largest formats are called "pennoni" while the smallest can be found under the name "pennettine" or "mezze penne" (pen cut in two).
