Change the way you think about cooking pasta! Introducing Barilla® Pronto™, the easy-to-prepare pasta that is ready in minutes. Barilla® Pronto™ is prepared in one pot or pan – no need to wait for water to boil, and no draining required! Available in five delicious shapes (Spaghetti, Penne, Elbows, Linguine and Rotini), Barilla Pronto will help make your pasta mealtime prep faster and easier – all in one pan!
When cooked, Barilla® Pronto™ Spaghetti maintains its shape and texture. The unique half length ensures that Pronto fits perfectly in your pan. Barilla® Pronto™ delivers a delicious taste sensation in every “al dente” bite.
1. Pour the whole box of pasta* into a large skillet (approximately 12 inches in diameter.) Pour 3 cups (750 ml) of cold water into the pan ensuring that the water covers the pasta. 2. Turn on the burner to high and set your timer to 10 minutes. Optional: add a bit of salt to taste. 3. Cook on high, stirring occasionally, until most of the water is absorbed, about 10 minutes but may vary by stove. Add your favorite sauce. 4. Continue to stir and cook in the sauce until desired sauce consistency and pasta texture are reached.
This comes in your standard pasta box, complete with cellophane window. Box has product and company information on it.
Scent and formula
So uh this looks and smells and tastes just like regular pasta.
Semolina(wheat), durum wheat flour, niacin, iron(ferrous sulfate), thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid. Contains: wheat ingredients. This product is manufactured on equipment that processes products containing egg.
So this pasta is kind of cool. It tastes just like regular spaghetti and has the same texture, you just get to skip a step. I used this with some marinara sauce, fresh basil, garlic, tomatoes and parmesan cheese to make some yummy spaghetti. It was really nice not having to drain and rinse the pasta and I didn’t have to use multiple pots or pans either! This was convenient and easy to make. Barilla has a lot of recipes for their new Pronto pastas that you can check out. The kiddos are particular about what they eat so I just made our usual with it. They also have elbows, linguine, penne and rotini shaped Pronto pasta. We have a box of penne to try too. I just need to figure out what to do with it! I was half expecting this to be gross in some way. I thought it would have a weird texture or taste, imagine my surprise when it didn’t. We don’t eat a lot of pasta, but I will be picking this up for when we do. We all really liked it.
