DeLallo Penne Rigate, No. 36 Cut 16 oz
Est 1950. The art & soul of pasta. Bronze die extruded for remarkable texture. Ready in 11 minutes. Al dente in 10. Expertly milled durum wheat semolina. Our Artisanal Roots: What began in 1950 holds true today - our family's passion is to craft and share wonderful Italian food. Our Pasta: We select and blend the highest quality durum wheat for a beautiful golden color, wonderful aroma and high protein content to maintain a superior pasta shape, structure and flavor. Our wheat is Expertly Milled into coarse ground semolina flour, and then carefully kneaded with cold, fresh, mineral-rich mountain spring water. The Extrusion Through Bronze Dies gives our pasta that rough feel, creating a naturally porous surface that absorbs and captures every type of sauce. We dry our pasta slowly at low temperature to reproduce the traditional way of making pasta. This method respects the ingredients, preserving the pasta's color, texture and aroma. The perfect al dente bite is achieved when pasta cooks to a tender exterior balanced by a firm bite with a fleck of white at its core - the pasta's soul. Our recipe is simple, and our approach, traditional: patience, wheat and water. This ensures an authentic al dente experience every time. Our love of penne rigate: Name for its pen shape, this well-known cut has angular ends that draw sauce into its hollow body. This, along with its ridges, make penne rigate a perfect cut for fresh tomato sauces with mozzarella and basil. Its pairs great with the beloved tomato cream sauce, penne ala vodka.
