  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup Barilla® Tomato & Basil sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • ½ cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, shaved
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  • Pour the whole box of pasta into a large skillet (approximately 12 inches in diameter). Pour 3 cups of cold water into the pan, ensuring that the liquid covers the pasta.

  • Cook on high, stirring regularly, until ¾ of the water is absorbed, about 8 minutes but may vary by stove.
  • Add sauce to the skillet and continue to cook for approximately 2 minutes.
  • Remove skillet from heat and stir in basil, cheese and salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
