Our Chef’s tip

Salt will help flavor the pasta but avoid adding oil as your sauce won't stick.

**Participants were given Pronto® pasta and asked to provide their thoughts. Participants were compensated and results may vary. 



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.


Turn on the burner to high and set your timer to 10 minutes. Optional: add about 1/2 teaspoon of salt to taste.


Cook on high, stirring occasionally, until most of the water is absorbed, about 10 minutes but may vary by stove.


Add one jar of Barilla(R) sauce and continue to heat through for 1 minute before serving. Or, remove pan from heat, add your favorite ingredients, and enjoy!
