Product Description

Italian Organic Whole Wheat Penne Ziti Rigate Dry Pasta.
100% Organic Whole Durum Wheat Semolina.
From Gragnano near Naples in Italy.
Suitable for Vegetarians.

Garofalo has been making pasta for over 300 years in Gragnano near Naples in Italy, the home of pasta. Garofalo whole wheat pasta is made from organic whole durum wheat semolina and shaped through a bronze die to produce quality dry pasta with a slightly nutty flavour. Whole wheat pasta is made using the whole grain and has high protein content, resulting in nutritious pasta with an al dente texture and superb taste.
Penne are probably the most popular tubular pasta types around, The word Penne means "quills" and refers to straight tubes of pasta cut diagonally at the ends (like a quill pen). Rigate means "ridges" which helps hold more sauce on the pasta than the smooth penne type.
Penne makes excellent and versatile pasta for many applications because of the very practical design. The angle cut of the end makes a large surface area for sauce to fall into and be drawn up the tube which means they are great for pairing with thick tomato sauces, meat sauces, chunky vegetable sauces, and thick cream sauces.

as good as whole wheat pasta gets

you will love it if you like whole wheat. It is pretty different than the regular pasta but still very tasty and with nice texture.

Great texture and flavour

Definitely better than other brands. The texture and flavour are far superior.

Tastes like damp cardboard - I guess you really have to like whole wheat to enjoy this one. I am not there yet.

Store cupboard pasta

Love this pasta. A regular in my store cupboard stays nicely al dente and wholewheat element not noticeable but you feel you're getting a bit of extra goodness into family meal. Great with broccoli and anchovy sauce, tuna with red pepper sauce or in any pasta bake
