Pasta is a great vehicle for all kinds of veggies and sauces. It's fine to say that one should eat whole grains all the time, but consider whole wheat pasta problems, i.e.: (1) having to out of one's way to buy it, (2) it's unstable and goes rancid much more easily than white pasta, (3) neither the taste nor texture is quite the same, (4) it's much more expensive. Result: we grab white pasta off the supermarket shelf most of the time. Mueller has a new line of pasta called Mueller's Essentials, which is super fortified with vitamins, minerals and most important, 5 grams per serving of fiber, something none of us get enough of. (See What About Fiber.) Prices are not much more than regular white flour pasta, and it comes in elbows, penne rigate, shells and twists. This should take the excuses out of doing the good thing with pasta.
