'Tis the season, for family, friends, and more importantly - food! Nothing brings people together like the holidays... except for maybe pasta. This year, embrace your inner gourmet and whip up these 8 elevated pasta dishes guaranteed to impress even the most discerning of guests. 

Straight from the Barilla® kitchen, each recipe features a different variety of their artisanal bronze cut line of pasta, Collezione. Bronze cut pasta is made by slowly extruding pasta through bronze coated dies, which creates a porous texture that helps it perfectly cling to sauces.

From Penne with Grilled Salmon & Chives in a Creamy Sauce to Casarecce with Roasted Cauliflower, Savoy Cabbage & Creamy Saffron Sauce, buon appetito!
