Barilla PLUS® Spaghetti

The most popular shape in Italy; the name comes from the Italian word spaghi which means "lengths of cord". Spaghetti originates from the south of Italy and is commonly used with tomato sauces, fresh vegetables or fish.

Barilla PLUS® Spaghetti


When cooked Barilla Spaghetti is graceful, elegant and maintains its authentic shape. Gently rolling Spaghetti with a fork gathers the pasta with the sauce, delivering a delicious taste sensation in every bite.

PLUS® pairs well with tomato based sauces and sauces with lots of fresh vegetables.Oil-based sauce work well with all PLUS® shapes. Typically we do not recommend to use meat based sauces with 

PLUS® shapes. 

How to use
