    Product Weight:
    1 lbs.


    Whole-Wheat Elbow Macaroni, known simply as Elbows, is a distinctly curved pasta tube shape known for its feature in the baked pasta classic, Macaroni and Cheese. Elbow pasta is perfect for capturing sauces and small bits of ingredients in their hollow bends.

    DeLallo Organic Whole-Wheat Pasta begins with a high-quality blend of Italian organic durum wheat. Wheat is chosen for its beautiful color, wonderful aroma and high protein content. All of these characteristics create a pasta with ideal appearance, flavor and al dente texture when cooked. This wheat is ground into whole durum wheat flour, then kneaded with rich mountain spring water for everything you love about traditional pasta, but with the benefits of whole grains. Pasta is extruded with bronze dies for a rough surface texture perfect for capturing sauces. True to tradition, we dry our pasta slowly at low temperatures to retain the pasta’s taste, texture and aroma.

    Kitchen and Usage Tips:

    Whole-Wheat Elbow Macaroni is more than a pasta for macaroni and cheese recipes, but also a fun shape that shines in a number of incredible pasta dishes and sauces. Elbows catch thicker sauces and small ingredients in their hollow bends, so besides cheesy baked pasta, they are perfect for cold picnic pasta salads, rich tomato-based sauces, lush cream sauces and veggie-loaded primavera-style sauces.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    What Is Whole-Wheat Elbow Macaroni? With roots in Northern and Central Italy, Elbow Macaroni is one of the most popular pasta shapes. Whole-Wheat Elbows are made with organic-certified durum wheat semolina. Pasta dough is extruded into small curved tubes resembling a C shape. This iconic macaroni is most famous for its role in the cheesy baked pasta dish, Macaroni and Cheese.

    Is Whole-Wheat Elbow Macaroni The Same As Whole-Wheat Macaroni? In the U.S., the descriptions of Elbow Macaroni, Macaroni and Elbows are all referring to the same elbow-shaped pasta. This is most likely because of their famous role in Macaroni and Cheese.

    Is Whole-Wheat Elbow Macaroni The Same As Whole-Grain Elbow Macaroni? Wheat is a grain and so pasta classified as “whole- wheat” is also “whole-grain.” The converse is not true, however. A pasta referred to as “whole grain” can be made up of any type of grain—not just wheat. A pasta labeled “whole-wheat” is made with 100% whole wheat.

    What Is Whole-Wheat Elbow Macaroni Made Of? DeLallo Organic Whole-Wheat Elbow Macaroni is made with organic whole durum wheat flour and mineral-rich spring water. This durum wheat flour includes the whole kernel of wheat, unlike traditional semolina that strips grains for a white refined flour. No additives, fillers or preservatives.

    Is Whole-Wheat Elbow Macaroni Gluten-Free? No, Whole-Wheat Elbow Macaroni is made with hard durum wheat flour, which contains gluten.

    Is Whole-Wheat Elbow Macaroni Healthy? Yes, whole-wheat pasta is a heart-healthy substitute for traditional semolina pasta. Whole-wheat pasta is an excellent source of fiber and a high-fiber diet is shown to improve blood sugar control, heart health and weight management.
