CARMIANO Penne Rigate IGP 500 g
The “PENNE RIGATE” were born in Genoa in the 19th century and were so called because they seemed to imitate the nibs of fountain pens. Their typical shape is slender and cylindrical with oblique cuts at both ends.
Suitable for all types of sauces thanks to their characteristic stripes.
Pasta di Gragnano is made using durum wheat of the highest quality, which has a high protein content. To be certified ‘Pasta di Gragnano‘, it has to contain at least 13% protein, whereas regular pasta normally has 11.5%. The dough must be extruded through rough bronze forms and, once it has taken shape, dried with a slow process (up to 60 hours).
