Discover the versatility and rich history of Penne Rigate n° 41, now conveniently available in a 24x500g pack. Originating from Italy, this short, ridged pasta with its distinctive diagonal cut is a staple in kitchens worldwide. The term "Penne" draws its name from the goose feather or "quill", historically used for writing, which mirrors the pasta's unique cut.
Penne Rigate was created in 1865 by Giovanni Battista Capurro, a pasta-maker from San Martino d'Albaro (Genoa), who patented a machine for cutting pasta diagonally without crushing it. This marked a significant step forward in pasta production, ensuring a clean, uniform cut that previously could only be achieved by hand.
