Penne are a short, diagonal cut, ridged type pasta shape. In Italian, "penne" refers to goose feathers which were historically used to write with, along with the cut on a diagonal to achieve a very thin tip.

Penne are one of the few pasta shapes with an exact date of birth: in 1865, Giovanni Battista Capurro, a pasta maker from San Martino d'Albaro (Genoa) obtained a patent for a diagonal cutting machine. His invention cut the fresh pasta into a pen shape.

Whole Wheat Penne is particularly versatile and adaptable to most sauces.
