Morelli Penne con Germe di Grano Pasta 500g
In the world of pasta shapes Penne is the great all-rounder. Morelli Penne is made with wheat germ (‘germe di grano’ in Italian), a secret ingredient not found in most common types of pasta. Wheat germ is a rock star ingredient! It is full of nutrients and toasted nutty goodness. Morelli Penne are ridged (‘rigate’), making them ideal to hold tomato-based sauces. Try with our Toscana in Tavola Arrabbiata pasta sauce to make penne all’arrabbiata (or ‘angry penne’!).
