Create a variety of signature pasta dishes with this Barilla mezzi rigatoni pasta. Mezzi rigatoni combines the heartiness of traditional rigatoni with a smaller size, creating a short, sauce-catching pasta. This versatile pasta cut's large diameter and ridges allow sauces to adhere to the entire surface of the noodle, making it an ideal pairing for meat-, dairy-, and tomato-based sauces and vegetables. Use it to serve a fun twist on Italian staples like rigatoni alla norma or rigatoni alla Genovese, or to serve simple yet elegant dishes that showcase fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, like ripe tomatoes and basil, or global ingredients, like a garlic cream sauce with Parmigiano-Reggiano. Or, add this mezzi rigatoni to a chunky soup for a toothy bite. It's also great for baked dishes and casseroles like pasta al forno and timballo. No matter how it's prepared, Barilla pasta is trusted among Italian chefs and remains Italy's #1 brand of pasta for its reliability in texture and ability to complement fresh ingredients and bold flavors.
This pasta is made with the finest durum wheat semolina to deliver great taste and ensure an "al dente" texture your customers crave, every time. Soft and fine, durum semolina is ideal for pasta as it easily forms the shape with its supple, moldable dough and holds up well during cooking. To prepare, use 4-6 quarts of water per pound of pasta. Bring to a rolling boil and add salt to taste. Add the pasta to the boiling water, stir gently, and return to a boil. For "al dente" pasta, boil uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. For more tender pasta, boil for an additional minute. Remove from the heat and drain well. Simply add your preferred ingredients, plate, and serve!
In 1877, Pietro Barilla opened a bread and pasta shop in Parma, Italy with the dream of supplying his community with the most delicious handmade bread and pasta to serve at their own family tables. Pietro and his son Riccardo worked tirelessly to make and deliver their products daily to the streets of Parma and over the years began to purchase more advanced pasta-making technology and warehouse space to keep up with the demand. After years of success and expansion due to their commitment to quality, authentic products and a passion for innovation, Barilla has since positioned itself as the world's leading industrial pasta producer. It remains an Italian family-owned company that is dedicated to bring high-quality, nutritious products while supporting an environmentally-sustainable production process from field to fork.
