It is not Spanish but Italian, and in principle it is the plural of penna ("feather"), but it is used in international cuisine to name a type of dry pasta noodles, cylindrical and with the tips cut to the bias reminiscent of the shape of the pens or fountain pens. [Note: in case they come looking for something else, the penis in Italian is called cazzo. ]
