Delallo Organic Whole Wheat Penne Rigate Pasta

Est 1950. The art & soul of pasta. Bronze die extrude for remarkable texture. Artisanal pasta. Ready in 11 minutes al dente in 10. Expertly milled. 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 Italian organic durum wheat for a beautiful color, wonderful aroma and high protein content to maintain a superior pasta shape, structure and flavor. Our wheat is expertly milled into ground whole-wheat flour, and then carefully kneaded with cold, fresh, mineral-rich mountain spring water to create the texture of traditional pasta but with all the benefits of the whole grain. 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. Artisans of al dente. 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. Named 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. It pairs great with the beloved tomato cream sauce, penne alla vodka.
