Perfect for ...

Elbows, 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 ProteinPLUS® 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 macaroni & cheese, summer pasta salad, baked pasta dishes, or tossed with your favorite dairy (like butter and cheese) or tomato-based sauces.

Cooking & Measuring

  • Measuring your pasta

    / /
  • Our Chef’s tip

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


  • Cook Barilla ProteinPLUS™ Elbows in boiling water for 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, ProteinPLUS™ takes several more minutes to cook than traditional pasta.
