What is Penne Pasta?
Penne pasta is a type of pasta with a tube shape of about 45mm in length and 12mm in width. The ends are cut on a slant and the pasta has tiny vertical ridges. Penne is cream colored and hard when uncooked. Once boiled it is soft and chewable, while holding its form. The flavor is mild and nutty and pairs best with a sauce such as marinara, but can be used in many savory dishes.
