Elbows or Macaroni, also known as "Gomiti" in Italian, is named for its twisted tubular shape. Pasta elbows originated from Northern and Central Italy, where they are traditionally used in soups. The Barilla Protein+® version is ridged with an extra twist, giving it a more sophisticated shape that also helps to hold sauce. This fun shape is perfect for your favorite mac and cheese recipe, summer pasta salad, baked pasta dishes, tossed with your favorite cheese, or in a tomato-based sauce.

Our Chef’s tip

Add a generous pinch of sea salt to the cooking water to enhance the pasta’s flavor.

Avoid adding oil to the water as it prevents sauce from clinging to the pasta.

Cook Barilla Protein+® Elbows in boiling water for 5-7 minutes, then drain and serve according to the recipe directions. For more tender pasta, boil an additional minute. Due to its higher protein content, Protein+® takes several more minutes to cook than traditional pasta.
