Whole Wheat Penne Rigate (500g) - La Molisana

£2.19

Penne is one of the most famous Italian pasta shapes and is loved across Italy and the world. Penne means “pen”, and gets its name from its shape - a short cylinder-shaped pasta that has angled edges - and Rigate means "ridged". Penne Rigate complements virtually every sauce and are exceptional when paired with a chunky sauce. Also, these shapes are great for baking dishes.

Cooking time: 11 minutes.

Whole Wheat Maccheroni (500g) - La Molisana

£2.19

Maccheroni, in Italy, is the name for a type of pasta shaped like a short tube. This wholemeal pasta is made from 100% Italian stone-hulled wheat and bronze drawing, and this makes the surface porous and "sauces-catching". Try these Maccheroni with a delicious mix of fresh and dried green tomatoes, some anchovy fillets and a sprinkling of salted ricotta and sliced almonds.

Whole Wheat Fusilli (500g) - La Molisana

£2.19

La Molisana whole wheat  Fusilli are prepared with the traditional La Molisana recipe: the mountain air of Molise that preserves the grain intact and ensures pure dried pasta; the spring water used for the dough that arrives cold directly from the Matese Park; stone hulling, carried out today with the most modern technologies that keep the original qualities of each single grain of wheat intact, for a rough and tenacious pasta, bronze drawn and with excellent cooking resistance.

£1.35

Penne Lisce (500g) - La Molisana

£1.35

The trademark of the Apulia region, \'Orecchiette\' literally means \'little ears\'. A full-bodied disc shape with an edge that is just a bit thicker than its inner part, and an authentic wrinkled texture that can perfectly capture the pasta sauce. The most famous recipe associated with this pasta type is certainly \'Orecchiette alle Cime di Rapa\', which combines it with seasonal greens like turnip tops or broccoli, extra-virgin olive oil and a touch of garlic.
