Making Italy's best pasta for over 140 years, everybody's favourite Barilla Spaghetti n.5 is a staple in households across the world. Traditionally served with oil-based sauces, it works just as well with dairy and tomato-based sauces, too. Make delicious Italian dishes like Carbonara, or pair it with a Pomodoro sauce and your favourite seafood or vegetables. Part of our Classic Blue Box range, which means perfect, quality ""al dente"" pasta every time, our Barilla Spaghetti n.5 cooks in just 9 minutes. Simply bring water to a boil in a large pot then add the Spaghetti along with a generous pinch of rock salt to enhance the pasta's flavour. For authentic ""al dente"" pasta, boil uncovered, stirring occasionally for 9 minutes. For pasta that's more tender, boil for an additional minute. Drain well and serve immediately with your favourite Barilla pasta sauce or pesto. With a variety of shapes in our line of traditional semolina pasta, you're sure to find the perfect pasta for any recipe. From our short shapes like Blue Box Penne Rigate or Farfalle to longer variations such as Blue Box Linguine or Spaghettoni, you're guaranteed to always get a perfect ""al dente"" bite. At Barilla, we're passionate about pasta and have been sharing our passion with the world since 1877, when the first pasta shapes were made by hands using simple tools. We strive to make pasta and sauces that are good for you and good for the planet.
