Penne Pasta is one of my absolute favorite types of pasta. I love the way it holds the sauce. I don't make it from scratch. It just is too time consuming to shape a hundred little individual tunnels. That is what industrial sized pasta making machines are for. I am very thankful for the gluten free penne I found at sprouts. It is spendy, $3.75 for one 12 ounce box, but worth it for the occasional splurge. You really cannot tell it is gluten free. AT ALL! Schar does a great job!
