What is the preparation difference between Ready Pasta and Barilla Pronto?

Ready Pasta is fully cooked pasta that can either be heated in the microwave for 60 seconds or in a skillet with two teaspoons of olive oil for 2 to 4 minutes. Barilla® Pronto® is placed in one pan, covered with cold water, then simply cooked over high heat until the water is absorbed, eliminating the need to pre-boil or drain. Both preparation processes achieve “al dente” perfection. For best results, follow the heating instructions on the back of the package.
