At Barilla, we're passionate about pasta. After all, we have been pasta makers since 1877. As an Italian family-owned food company, Barilla pasta is synonymous with high quality and "al dente" perfection every time. Our Spaghetti is made from the finest durum wheat and is non-GMO verified, peanut-free and suitable for a vegan or vegetarian diet. Perfect for twirling, too! Did you know that spaghetti is the most popular shape in Italy? The word spaghetti comes from the Italian word "spaghi", which means "lengths of cord." Twirled properly on a spoon or eaten with just a fork, Barilla Spaghetti will maintain its authentic shape and hold on to just about any kind of sauce you enjoy.
