It’s Pride Month and to celebrate, a pasta chef has made the longest rainbow pasta.

The month of June is known as LGBT Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots of 1669.

As a result many pride events are held around the world, including Durban Pride on June 29.  Of course, no pride celebration is complete without a bold splash of colour - from the costumes, body art, outrages headgear and now pasta.

Happy #PRIDE! 2019 marks 50 years after the Stonewall Riots and here at Casa Barilla, we support the LGBTQ+ community by promoting inclusivity. This year for PRIDE our NYC location will have the honor of collaborating with @saltyseattle! We will be featuring her famous rainbow pasta to create deliciously vibrant Rainbow Ravioli from June 15th-June 30th! For every rainbow dish sold, we will donate one portion of pasta to the @AliForneyCenter to support them in their efforts to help LGBTQ+ youth.
