5 minutes cook time. Gluten and egg free. FreeFrom Food Awards 2013 - Innovation award winner Dell 'Ugo chickpea fusilli. Suitable for vegans. Suitable for coeliacs. Gluten-free penne. Delicious penne made with the finest corn and rice flour to be naturally gluten-free and egg-free. A few words from Team Ugo. Our customers have been telling us for years that they want a wheat-free pasta that doesn't compromise on taste and flavour. So when Paul Ugo's wife Kate became sensitive to wheat and dairy during her pregnancy, Paul went on a mission to create a gluten-free pasta with no compromise. ""We wanted to continue to eat the favourite family pasta meals I always enjoyed when I was growing up. And here it is... gluten-free pasta that tastes like pasta."". Paul Ugo. Ugo Foods. Paul's grandfather Luigi arrived in London in 1921 aged 14 on his 'gap' year from Italy. He fell in love with his wife, married and never looked back, setting up shop at 4, Gerrard Street, Soho in 1929 supplying pasta and noodles to local hotels and restaurants. Over the last eighty years, Ugo Foods has continued to supply the best traditional and innovative pasta to top hotels and retailers. We've also won the most awards of any UK pasta supplier. How do we do what we do for you? As you can see, we make our free from pasta using just rice, corn and water. We'd love to tell you that you could make it like this at home, but a lot of Paul's know how has gone into making such a 'simple' product so, well, simple. And a bit of Dell' Ugo magic too. We hope you enjoy it. Did you know? Last year our Gluten-free Chickpea Fusili won first place in the FreeFrom Food awards Innovation category.

Preparation & Storage
- Our delicious gluten-free penne tastes wonderful with any sauce but we love to use a rich tomato or Bolognese-based one. Alternatively why not make a great pasta bake? Toss some cooked penne in your favourite sauce and top with lashings of grated cheese before popping in the oven.
- Hob From Chilled: Allow approximately 100 - 150g pasta per person. Place the pasta into a large pan of salted boiling water. Bring to the boil and cook for 4-5 minutes. Refresh under cold running water for 5 seconds to remove any excess starch. Drain thor
This is fresh (chilled) food so keep in the fridge below 5°C and use by the date on the pack or within 48 hours of opening. You can home-freeze but best to do so on the day of purchase and use within 3 months. It's absolutely fine (and quick) to cook from frozen - just allow a further 1 minute cooking time, but please don't re-freeze.
