Trenne, an angular take on smooth penne, is a modern, architectural shape with flat sides and pointed ends. Its angled corners make for great mouthfeel and bring a fresh take to any recipe calling for penne. Although it is delicious in everything from baked dishes to pasta salad, we recommend serving trenne with lighter, olive-oil based sauces that allow the unique shape to make a big impression on the plate.
About the Producer: In 1929, Gaetano Sergiacomo started making rustic pasta using the whole wheat flour produced at his family’s stone mill in the small town of Penne in Abruzzo. In 1981, his daughter, Nicolina Peduzzi, decided to revive the pastificio (pasta factory), naming the new product line Rustichella d’Abruzzo. Soon after, Nicolina’s adult children Gianluigi and Stefania joined the family business, and within a few years, the small pastificio had grown into one of the most extensive artisanal pasta lines in Italy. Today, Rustichella d’Abruzzo offers a diverse selection of pasta, pasta sauce, holiday goods and more.
