One of the all-time favourites: penne. We make our penne ‘rigate’, meaning ridged, which helps this little guy hold its shape and soak up sauce. ‘Penne’ comes from the Italian word for quill and the angled end encourages even more sauce to be scooped up. Safe to say this is one saucy fella. These characteristics mean that this pasta is destined for a baked masterpiece.
Made in 2 days not 2 hours
Mass manufactured pasta takes two hours to make, arriving as flour and leaving in a plastic bag. Ours takes two days. We dry our pasta slowly overnight, at low temperatures, allowing the dough to gently mature and develop flavour.
Large factories create shapes using teflon plastic; we use traditional bronze metal dies. They are heavy, expensive and absolutely magical! Each piece of pasta has a wonderfully rough surface – allowing them to cuddle and absorb sauces, creating beautiful, cohesive dishes of food.
No bright yellow, shiny pasta swimming around in the bottom of a bowl here!
