McDonald’s: When In Rome, Do As The Romans Do, With A Pasta Salad

May 23, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Italy’s iconic pasta maker Barilla has partnered with McDonald’s to add some of the zest and health benefits of the Mediterranean diet to the fast-food giant’s menu. A number of McDonald’s restaurants in the country will offer a pennette pasta salad with tuna, tomatoes, peppers, capers, olives and oregano. The chief executive of the Barilla Group said the pasta salad was a way of moving the McDonald's menu "ever nearer to the Mediterranean model of eating". A McDonald’s executive said the pasta salad was "a key step in the process of embracing the tastes, flavors and habits of the Italians".
