“The kitchen is the heart of the home and where Parla™ began. Family and friends for 30 years have enjoyed traditional recipes in our home and in each other’s company. There is so much joy in pasta! People naturally gravitate to the kitchen, sitting, talking, hugging the cook, stealing a bite...and sharing their lives. At Parla, pasta is our language and we use it to express our care for purity and Italian traditions. We handcraft and produce our recipes in small batches for quality and freshness. We are excited that you have decided to bring Parla into your home and kitchen so that you can experience the timeless joy of pasta.”

FOUNDERS AND OWNERS OF DRAKE’S FRESH PASTA, MAKERS OF PARLA

From tried-and-true pasta experts.

Parla may be new to your grocery store, but the people behind it are tried and true pasta experts. The Drake family has been crafting small-batch pasta since 1985 for restaurants and specialty stores that stake their reputation on quality Italian food. In fact, you may have already tried our pasta in your favorite restaurant. Now, that same pasta is available right in your kitchen.

Congratulations, you just became a chef!

You don’t need to be a culinary genius to make a fantastic Italian meal with Parla. Using simple cooking methods, just add your favorite ingredients, and in the time it takes to have a glass of Chianti you’ll be serving a genuine, healthful Italian meal to family and friends. Or, for something really quick, just heat, season to taste and enjoy. We generously fill our pastas with real, pure ingredients so eating Parla “naked” is just as satisfying.

Honoring the food we make.

Parla is made and filled with all-natural ingredients you can recognize. Even our preservative is natural: freezing. Pasta loves being frozen, and our quick freezing process locks in nutrition, flavor and freshness—without artificial preservatives. Apart from health benefits, freezing offers a longer shelf life compared to refrigerating, and you’ll find that the pasta cooks to perfection.
