Recommended Uses:

  1. Classic Tomato Basil Penne: Cook Barilla Penne Rigate to al dente perfection and toss it with a vibrant tomato and basil sauce. Finish with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of Parmesan for a timeless and simple Italian dish.
  2. Pesto Perfection: Pair the ridges of penne with a rich basil pesto sauce. The nooks and crannies of the pasta capture the pesto, ensuring each bite bursts with the aromatic flavours of basil, garlic, and pine nuts.
  3. Creamy Carbonara: Create an indulgent Carbonara by combining cooked penne with a creamy egg and Parmesan sauce, flavoured with pancetta or bacon. The ridges help the sauce cling to the pasta, enhancing each forkful.
