Making Italy's best pasta for over 140 years, Barilla's classic Penne Rigate n.73 is one of the most famous Italian pasta shapes and popular all over Italy. The name Penne, which means "pen" in Italian, is derived from the shape of the pasta. The tubular cut with beveled ends is inspired by the quill of an old writing pen. Suitable for almost any pasta sauce, whether it's oil, dairy or tomato-based, opt for a classic Italian dish like Penne all'Arrabbiata or Penne alla Carbonara. Part of our Classic Blue Box range, which means perfect, quality "al dente" pasta every time, our Penne Rigate n.73 cooks in just 11 minutes. Simply bring water to a boil in a large pot, add the Penne, and a generous pinch of sea salt to the cooking water to enhance the pasta's flavour. For authentic "al dente" pasta, boil uncovered, stirring occasionally for 11 minutes. For pasta that's more tender, boil for an additional minute. Drain well and serve immediately with your favourite Barilla sauce. With a variety of shapes in our line of traditional semolina pasta, you're sure to find the perfect pasta for any recipe. From our short shapes like Blue Box Elbows or Farfalle to longer variations such as Blue Box Linguine or Spaghetti, you're guaranteed to always get a perfect "al dente" bite. At Barilla, we're passionate about pasta and have been sharing our passion with the world since 1877, when the first pasta shapes were made by hands using simple tools. We strive to make pasta and sauces that are good for you and good for the planet. Barilla. A sign of love.

Barilla pasta penne tastes great and cooks to perfection! Just the right bite!
worth the extra just for packaging
I bought just for the convenience of the packaging but after trying the pasta, it really surprised me. Naively thought pasta was pasta but it tastes a lot nicer, aswell as cooks evenly and keeps shape well. No brainer when on offer!
Good pasta - top packaging
I may be a bit uncivilised, but to me most dried pastas taste pretty much the same. Barilla tastes fine and it sells me on its 100% recyclable packaging.
Switched to this as fed up of so much plastic!
Authentic Italian pasta at a reasonable price
This is authentic Italian pasta. Cooks well and no plastic packaging, which is a bonus. A staple buy in our household.
