Product Description

Ocado Italian Penne.

Penne made from 100% durum wheat.

The ridges on the pasta, together with its hollow centre hold the sauce making it suitable for all sauces, baked dishes and salads.

Our Own-Label family owned pasta manufacturer began producing in 1993.
The Factory is located in Campania Region of Italy, on the slopes of the Appennines Mountains, close to the main cultivation areas of durum wheat; Irpinia, Puglia and Basilicata.
It is one of the very few Italian Pasta Companies to have their own mill, making production a fully integrated process from grain to pasta shape.

This is an Ocado product. Like everything in our range, it's good quality, sensibly priced and, of course, responsibly sourced.

Prepare & Use

Cooking Instructions:

Remove all packaging.

Allow approximately 50-75g of pasta per person for a starter or 75-100g for a main course.
Add pasta to a large pan of boiling water (1 litre of water per 100g of pasta). Add salt to taste and boil for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally, drain well and serve immediately in your favourite recipe.

A shorter cooking time results in a more "al dente" (firm) texture.

Not suitable for microwave cooking. Cooking appliances vary. These instructions are given as a guide. Ensure the product is piping hot before serving.

As good as any other penne we've tried

Good value and tasty.

Rating: 4 star out of 5

Good

This is fine, no different to other "own brands" as far as I can tell.

Rating: 3 star out of 5

Decent pasta, horrible packaging

The taste and texture of this penne is ok but think it takes much less time to cook than others perhaps. Reasonable for the price. What is annoying however is the packaging which explodes when you try to open it and disintegrates before your very eyes. Impossible to open a small bit.. it cracks apart so you best have another container to keep it in. ha ha

Worst pasta splits!

This pasta simply splits every time I use it. Not just me. Same with my mother in law & husband. Very poor.

Variation Use rigatoni instead of penne. Cheat Use a 300g jar tomato sauce for pasta. Perk it up with a drizzle of some good-quality olive oil, then serve with the pasta.
