Smooth penne! The way it was first created. The ribs were added when commodity pasta makers started using teflon dyes, because the sauce would not stick!
Penne is the post popular of all the short cuts. The pasta is toothsome and flavorful. This is the best Italian pasta you will ever eat. Mancini pasta is produced from durum wheat cultivated directly by the company, which is very uncommon. Semolina and water are the only ingredients.
They use circular bronze die plates and dry the pasta at temperatures lower than 130F, taking about 22 hours for short pasta and about 45 hours for long pasta.
Penne has a diameter of 8.5 mm and a length of 50 mm (about 2"). Cooking time is between 8-10 minutes.
