At Barilla, we're passionate about pasta. After all, we have been pasta makers since 1877. As an Italian family-owned food company, Barilla pasta is synonymous with high quality and "al dente" perfection every time. Our Elbows, Farfalle, and Rotini are made from the finest durum wheat and is non-GMO verified, peanut-free and suitable for a vegan or vegetarian diet.
Elbows, or "Chifferi" in Italian, are named for their curved, tubular shape.
Farfalle in Italian means “butterflies” which is the perfect name to describe this elegant shape. In the U.S. it is commonly referred to as "bow-tie" pasta.
Rotini is a corkscrew-shaped pasta that originated in Northern Italy. It's shape was inspired by watching children playing - always in motion just like the spirals of Rotini.
Barilla® Elbows are ridged with an extra curve, giving it a more sophisticated pasta shape that helps to hold the sauce.
Farfalle's fanciful shape allows it to star in a variety of recipes including light tomato-based sauces and pasta salads with vegetables.
The twists of the Rotini allow it to effortlessly hold more sauce, making this shape a great complement for pasta salads or any tomato-based sauce.
