Since our beginnings in Parma, Italy, in 1877, four generations of the Barilla family have been passing down the secrets to producing great quality pasta that really does cook and taste better. Risoni pasta is inspired by the shape of rice grains. Barilla Risoni is wonderful in soups or salads. For a surprising twist, try Risoni in your next risotto instead of rice. Barilla Risoni cooks to al dente perfection in just 10 minutes.
