Introducing Barilla's Frozen Pasta for Foodservice

Foodservice operators now have a new ally to help meet the challenges of labor shortages and constrained operations. It’s an innovation on a friendly and familiar favorite – Barilla pasta – the pasta experts since 1877. With 85 percent of consumers loving or liking pasta, it’s an easy order for today’s guests, and an easy solution for back-of-house teams of all skill levels. It’s now available exclusively for foodservice in a new pre-cooked and frozen form.

Barilla Frozen delivers the same quality and consistency chefs expect from the #1 pasta brand in Italy and the US, but with the time- and labor-saving benefits of pre-cooked pasta. With Barilla’s precise pre-cooking specification, Barilla Frozen is ready for action and al dente performance across a variety of cooking platforms and service styles. From microwaves to impingers, catering to ghost kitchens, Barilla Frozen is line-ready and made to perform. Thanks to high-quality semolina and rigorous testing of the IQF production process, Barilla Frozen can flex between to-order service or be held for 30 minutes or longer—perfect for today’s delivery environment.

Barilla Frozen is now available through DOT Foods in four cuts:

  • Cellentani/Cavatappi
  • Rigatoni
  • Penne
  • Elbows
