Short Penne (Mezze Penne)


Short Penne (Mezze Penne) is an extruded type of pasta with cylinder-shaped pieces, their ends cut at a bias.

Penne is the plural form of the Italian penna, deriving from Latin penna, and is a cognate of the English word pen.

When this format was created, it was intended to imitate the then-ubiquitous fountain pen’s steel nibs.

Mezze penne literally means: Half-pens

In fact, it is a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine.

Our pasta is made of milled wheat and water and is sometimes enriched with vitamins and minerals.

Pasta has a long tradition in Tunisia, a country sitting in the Mediterranean sea, located at 40 Km from Italy.

In fact, Tunisians are the 3rd consumers of pasta in the world per capita (not counting couscous).

 Tunisians are very demanding in terms of pasta quality.

This explains why pasta MADE IN TUNISIA is at the best standards in the world.

Tunisian government restricts export or sale of any pasta if it’s not made with 100% Durum semolina flour.

Another reason to guarantee the quality of our pasta.

In addition, we dry our pasta at a low temperature for several days to evaporate all the moisture which allows it to be stored for a longer period. 

When eaten in moderation, pasta can be part of a healthy diet.

Whole-grain pasta may be a better choice for many, as it is lower in calories and carbs but higher in fiber and nutrients.

You can also add your choice of protein to your pasta to turn it into a balanced meal.
