Barilla introduces a Tuscan pasta option

Posted by AFN Staff Writers on 18th January 2016

Barilla has added a new type of pasta to its pasta range available on the shelves of Australian supermarkets.


Named Pappardelle all’Uovo the pasta is the largest shape available amongst traditional egg-based pastas. The pasta style originates from Tuscany and is used in many traditional Italian dishes.


Barilla says the pasta cooks within seven minutes once placed in boiling water. It can be used with any type of pasta sauce although it is best recommended for fish and vegetable type dishes. Traditionally it is used to serve deep game ragu. It can be broken down and added to soups.


Pappardelle all’Uovo is available now through Woolworths supermarkets, sold in a 250g packet for AUD$3.49.


Barilla is a fourth-generation family-owned company, founded in 1877 and based in Parma, Italy. It employs over 8,000 people worldwide and exports to more than 100 countries.
