It is a smaller version of the penne rigate. Short and cylindrical with tapered ends and small ridges, it is made of 100% pure durum semolina. Soft and fine, durum semolina is ideal for pasta, easily forming strands and sheets with its supple, moldable dough.
This pasta ships dry and is simple to prepare, requiring approximately 11 minutes in boiling water. For every pound of pasta, use 4 quarts of water. A teaspoon of salt can be added to taste too, or left out if desired. With occasional stirring, the penne rigate will quickly become tender and ready for service.
Just add the preferred ingredients, plate, and serve!
