Doris authentic bronze dye pasta. Bronze dyes have a more course surface texture and will create a more porous and chalky texture to the pasta. This is considered a more desirable texture for a pasta. The porous texture allows for the pasta sauce to adhere to the pasta and absorb the sauce. One of Italy’s most popular cuts, penne rigate has a wider tube than the original penne (“quills”), but rigate (“with ridges”) on the outside. Serve with your favorite sauce. Ideal for sauces with ground meat or vegetables so that the sauce is trapped in the middle and on the points. A good choice for making pasta salad. Made with durum wheat semolina flour.
