Barilla® Introduces Bucatini Rigati to Foodservice Marketplace

Barilla Foodservice welcomes a fresh new line of pasta to their ranks with Bucatini Rigati. It’s the same long, round, hollow, semolina pasta shape widely known as bucatini, but enhanced with delicate ridges running from end to end, that enable the sauce to cling even better to each pasta strand. Bucatini has its origins in the Lazio and Abruzzo regions of central Italy, where Bucatini all’Amatriciana is a staple of classic Roman cuisine, combining the pasta with guanciale, Pecorino Romano and tomato sauce.

Bucatini Rigati joins a full line of over 24 semolina pasta cuts for foodservice from Barilla, the #1 national brand of pasta in Italy and in the United States, along with the Barilla PLUS and Whole Grain better-for-you pastas. Barilla Bucatini Rigati is available nationwide in a convenient 2/10lb case for volume foodservice. For foodservice-scale recipe ideas, visit http://www.barillafoodservicerecipes.com.
