Our authentic Italian pasta begins in the durum wheat fields of Puglia, Italy, where climate and soil produce premium grains. Expertly milled semolina flour is combined with cool, spring water, then extruded using bronze plates. This is what gives our pasta its unique texture: a coarse surface that will hug your favorite sauce and enhance the flavor of your dishes. With a traditional method of slow drying at low temperatures, DeLallo Pasta retains its fresh-bread taste and cooks al dente every time. More petite than traditional penne rigate, this "queen" of the pasta world boasts a slender hollow body perfect for scooping lighter and oil-based sauces.
