Penne rigate is one of the most versatile pasta types with a rough surface that helps to retain the sauce. Penne rigate pasta goes well with sauces such as marinara, meat sauces made with pork or beef, vegetable sauces, but the most classic combination of pasta penne is with Arrabbiata sauce.
Fun fact: Did you know that `penne` refers to the goose feather in Italian, which was used historically to write with and was cut on a diagonal to achieve a skinny tip?

The Celts, Egyptians, and Etruscans used this type of wheat thousands of years ago. Farro pasta (Triticum Dicoccum) emits a distinct scent of fresh hazelnut and grilled aubergine. It has a firm and slightly crunchy feel reminiscent of bread crusts, a creamy peanut butter flavour and a mild jujube aftertaste. Farro is nutritious pasta full of proteins, vitamins A, B, C, E, mineral salts and is an excellent source of fibre, antioxidants and polyphenols. In addition, Farro pasta is very easily digested, even by those who have difficulty with other wheat products.
The KAMUT® khorasan wheat is the ancestor of modern durum wheat. When cooked, it releases the delicate fragrance of white flowers and pinenuts. More importantly, much recent research confirmed that when compared to modern wheat, Kamut Khorasan has a significantly higher antioxidant content (polyphenols and selenium) and higher minerals (magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc).
