Update: Baked Penne using Whole Wheat Penne

I made the Baked Penne with Sausage, Beef and Red Wine Sauce recipe that I posted last weekend again today - this time substituting whole wheat penne pasta for the traditional penne.

While whole wheat pasta is undoubtedly healthier, we all seemed to agree that the original version of this particular recipe was preferable from a taste standpoint.

If you're into the "nuttiness" of whole wheat pasta, you'll probably find the substitution works just fine - otherwise, stick to the original recipe!

At the local market I also noticed that DeCecco makes a spinach penne - called "penne rigate con spinaci" - we might try that next time! Note that DeCecco doesn't make a whole wheat penne.
