Penne Zite is a type of Italian pasta known for its cylindrical shape with diagonal cuts at both ends, resembling quills or pens, which is where it gets its name. This pasta is typically about 2 inches (5 cm) long and has a smooth surface, distinguishing it from its ridged counterpart, penne rigate. Penne Zite is made from durum wheat semolina, giving it a firm texture that holds up well to cooking.


This versatile pasta shape is ideal for a variety of dishes. Its hollow centre allows it to capture and hold sauces, making it perfect for both creamy and tomato-based sauces. Penne Zite is often used in baked dishes like pasta al forno, where it can absorb the flavours of the sauce and cheese while maintaining its shape. It also pairs well with chunky vegetable sauces, meat ragùs, and lighter dishes with olive oil, garlic, and herbs.


Penne Zite's smooth surface and diagonal ends create a pleasing texture and appearance, making it a popular choice for both everyday meals and special occasions. Its ability to hold sauces and ingredients inside and out ensures a flavourful bite every time.
