From the Girolomoni Montebello Organic Farm in Le Marche. Spelt Penne Rigate as recommended by Nigella! http://www.nigella.com/books/nigellissima
This organic Penne Rigate (grooved quills) pasta is made from high quality organic and ecological spelt (Farro or Emmer wheat).
Penne Rigate is one of the most popular and versatile pasta shapes in Italy. It captures and binds the sauce within its ridges and so can be used with virtually any tomato and cream based sauces, with meat ragus, vegetables and cheese. It is also popular for baked pasta dishes and widely used in pasta salads too!
Spelt is one of the world’s oldest cultivated crops and has countless dietary benefits. It is packed with vitamins and nutrients and very easily digested providing a great source of energy for young and old alike. Spelt is, with good reason, rapidly growing in popularity as an alternative to grain, pasta and rice.
