6 Packets White Corn Pennette (6 x 250g pack). Buy in bulk!

We've taken white corn and made pennette, which are shorter and narrower than classic penne. This shape has been designed especially for Bontasana, and we recommend it for days when you're in the mood for a chunky vegetable sauce. The pennette's ridged surface makes this pasta a fun canvas for a variety of condiments and gives it a uniquely satisfying texture.

Cooking and Tips

Two cooking times
The package indicates two times: stick to the first, shorter, if you choose to drain the pasta and finish cooking it in a pan, in the oven, or in any other way; instead, follow the second cooking time, longer, to season it and serve it directly after simply boiling it in the pot.

Each type doubles in weight and volume
For this reason, the average recommended raw portion is 60 grams.

The cooking water can be reserved and reused for other preparations
Broths, soups, sautéed vegetables... Add an extra touch to your dishes with aromatic hints of spirulina or turmeric with Sarawak pepper. This last one, unsalted, can also become an excellent golden milk.

Our pasta does not overcook and remains intact even the next day
If there is any leftover don’t throw it away! Put it to the test, its structure always remains al dente, even the day after you’ve cooked it. Try it warm or at room temperature for your summer recipes or a quick lunch break.

Bontasana pasta is suitable for all preparations
Do not limit your creativity. For example, cook it the same way you would prepare risotto, adding liquid a little at a time: besides preserving its nutritional properties, the natural presence of starch will make every sauce richer and creamier. Au Gratin, in the oven, it will retain its structure ensuring a result that is always a winner.

Our extruder dies are entirely made of bronze
“Entirely” means that not only the disc, but also the inserts, are made of bronze, which is essential for obtaining a quality product that respects tradition: slower processing and longer drying times allow to achieve uniform pasta sheets, with an ideal surface porosity sauces and seasonings to cling on. Also, the designs were created specifically by a master die-caster for Bontasana.
