Rummo Penne Lisce are part of the short, diagonal cut, smooth pasta family and are one of the most well-known type of pasta, as well as being the most versatile for cooking. The lack of ridges is compensated for by a surprising softness which makes it exceptionally delicate on the palate. It is a delicate and sophisticated pasta which brings out the best in aromas, flavours and fragrance. Penne works well with all types of sauces.
Rummo pasta has been produced since 1846, making the company older than unified Italy itself! The pasta has a 14.5% protein count, much higher than other pastas, this means the pasta holds its shape and texture after cooking, whilst the bronze die casting of the pasta gives it a rougher exterior which carries the flavour of sauces better. Rummo’s slow processing approach to pasta means that unlike generic rapidly produced pasta, Rummo pasta is a delicate and authentically Italian base to many meals.
