Macaroni is most commonly associated with the “elbow” shape found in North American cuisine and is popular among children.

Pasta elbows originated from Northern and Central Italy, where they are traditionally used in soups.

The Barilla version is ridged with an extra twist, giving it a more sophisticated shape that also helps to hold the sauce. This shape is perfect in soups, baked pasta dishes, tossed with vegetables and cheese sauces.
