Created in the eastern Sicilian city of Catania, Pasta alla Norma is quintessential Sicilian cuisine. While the recipe may vary depending on the household, the core ingredients of this classic remain the same: eggplant, basil, tomatoes and a wonderfully salty ricotta salata.
Pairs with Practically Everything
With a touch of sweetness, herbal hints, sunkissed grain, and ascents of cinnamon, Bona Furtuna Penne provides a great al dente texture and elastic structure. Representative to what humans have been eating for thousands of years and easy for digestion, feel the nutritional benefits of ancient grain pasta in every bite. One of the common and versatile forms of pasta, Penne pairs well with a variety of tomato-based and cream-based sauces. Like a true Sicilian, try “Penne alla Norma” and experience the nutritional benefits of aubergine.
Ancient Grain Meets Modern Technology
Bona Furtuna Ancient Grain Pasta celebrates the spirit of Italian land and tradition. Sicily’s rich climate presents ideal growing conditions for many crops, including 100% organic, non-GMO grain. Perciasacchi and Russello are sublime heirloom wheat grains that grow tall, develop strong elasticity and create an authentic al dente texture in each noodle. Using modern practices, grain is ground domestically, rinsed minimally and repeatedly milled. Next, our Italian artisan heirloom pasta is shaped in bronze dies, cut by hand, and placed on racks to air dry in the Mediterranean breeze.

Tasty and traditional
Excellent. The texture was perfect and I liked the way the sauce clung to the pasta.
That's the benefit of using traditional bronze dyes- the pasta and the sauce come together almost effortlessly!
The penne was outstanding. It was easy to make the pasta al dente and with your arrabbiata sauce we had several great meals.
Fantastico! We're pretty enthusiastic about pasta and are happy to hear you enjoyed it!
