Product Description

Italian Penne Ziti Rigate Dry Pasta.
100% 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. Made from 100% robust desert durum wheat and shaped using a bronze die gives Garofalo pasta its premium taste and texture.

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.

Storage

Store in a cool, dry place.

Prepare & Use

Cooking time 11 minutes.
Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add salt if required. Keeping the water at a rolling boil add the amount of pasta needed. Stir with a wooden spoon to prevent the pasta sticking together and to avoid damaging the pasta. Cook for the recommended time, drain and serve.

Recipe

Cream of peppers, oregano and parmigiano.

Ingredients:
1 yellow and 1 red pepper, de-seeded and diced,
1 shallot, finely chopped,
1 tbsp oregano,
100 gr grated parmigiano,
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil,
400 gr of Garofalo Penne Rigate.

Method:
Place oil and shallots in a frying pan and sauté gently making sure shallots don't brown (as they become bitter).
Add the peppers and sauté until very tender; if the mix becomes too dry add some boiling water (a glass will do).
Season to taste (please remember that extra salt will go in with the parmigiano, so don't overdo it).
Place the sauce in a food processor and blitz to a cream, add the oregano.
To cook the pasta, use a large capacity pan and bring to the boil 4 litres of water, add salt and then the pasta.
The golden rule for cooking pasta properly is to use 1 litre of water for every 100 gr of pasta! Don't bother adding ANY oil (it has better uses) to prevent pasta from sticking: it is the quantity of water and regular stirring that will ensure pasta doesn't stick.
Place the sauce on the drained pasta, stir well and add plenty of grated parmigiano. You may wish to add a splash of extra virgin olive oil. Serve at once and enjoy this most flavoursome, light and inexpensive dish.
This is a wonderfully tasty sauce and its creamy consistency makes it ideal with the penne: some (but crucially not all) of the sauce finding its way into each penna!

Expensive but good

This is a good quality pasta, despite the other negative review. If it is cooked correctly it is fine.

Too thick

I found this product too thick to cook properly. the inside was still raw not al dente when the outside was becoming overcooked.
