This superior dried pasta has P.G.I. (Protected Geographical Indication), a trademark of the European Union which guarantees that a product has to comply with strict production specifications.
Penne ziti rigate are one of the most popular shapes of pasta. The extremities of this tubular pasta are cut diagonal to look like quill pens.
The dough is made using slow bronze drawing semolina and water from Monti Lattari which allows the pasta to be porous and so to better soak in sauces.
