Penne, Italian for pens, is a relatively new pasta shape but is popular world-wide. They are tubular in shape and hold sauce like no other.
It is primarily sold dried (pasta secca) and available everywhere.
Here I am making Penne al Baffo. It is a saucy delight of cream and tomato paste.
Enjoy and sorry if it gets in your moustache (hehehehe),
