Enjoy truly authentic Italian pasta
Artfully crafted by master pasta makers in the Dolomite region of Italy, this premium organic pasta is made from a rich, local variety of durum wheat called Matt. It is also bronze cut and dried at a lower temperature for a longer period of time to preserve the flavor of the wheat. Bronze cut pastas are also a rougher, more porous pasta that hold sauces and seasonings better and have a more textured mouth feel. Penne Lisce is Italian for smooth "quills" or feather pens and as one of the most versatile cuts, penne complements most types of sauce and is perfect for oven-baked (al forno) dishes.
I bought this with the Italian dinner box right after the holidays and was very surprised in a good way how buttery smooth this pasta is when cooked. I thought I made a mistake in cooking it, but tried it again and same effect. Loved it!
