Barilla Pronto Pasta: The Lazy Man’s Noodle


Written by Paul Strauss | March 26, 2015

Despite being one of the more basic things to make in the kitchen, cooking pasta still requires several steps – boiling water, adding pasta, stirring pasta, draining pasta, putting pasta back into pot and adding sauce. ‘Aint nobody got time for that.


Thankfully, Barilla has come along and invented a dry pasta that only requires that you put the pasta in the pan, add cold water, turn on high heat, and stir occasionally. In 10 minutes, Pronto pasta absorbs all of the water, and the pasta turns out perfectly al dente. Just add your sauce, meats or veggies, and it’s all cooked in a single pot without draining.

It’s pretty neat how all the water is sopped up by the pasta, and it tastes great too. Trust me – my stomach has been filled with these deliciously lazy noodles all week.
