12 Easy-Cook Entrées Made with Premium Barilla Al Bronzo™ Pasta Dress Up Your Holiday Meals

BIRMINGHAM, AL (November 28, 2023) - Pasta is a perennial weeknight favorite, but it can also rise to the occasion when you're serving more creative fare for family meals or even holiday entertaining. Now eMeals, America's leading meal planning service, and Barilla, the world's leading pasta producer, are helping adventurous cooks up their pasta game with A Cut Above Holiday Pasta - a free recipe collection featuring Barilla Al Bronzo™ Pasta that is bronze-cut to cling well to any sauce.

Barilla's premium Al Bronzo line is crafted with an innovative micro-engraved bronze-cut method of forming the dough, creating a rough surface texture that grips the sauce better than other pasta varieties. A custom blend of high-quality, non-GMO durum wheat provides perfect cooking resistance.

To take full advantage of Al Bronzo's features, eMeals created 12 company-worthy recipes that are available immediately on eMeals' A Cut Above Holiday Pasta landing page and in the Bonus Collection section of the eMeals app for subscribers. The lineup includes:
