Let’s just say that loving pasta seems to be a universal thing. A week ago I tweeted about a healthier pasta I discovered- it’s filled with protein, contains tons of vitamins, & is lower on carbs [ typically pastas have 45 grams per serving, this one is 35 grams ]. I could not believe how many of you responded my tweet! So I knew I had to let you all in on this little gem ASAP. Also, included below are the nutrition facts & my favorite store bought, Rao’s spicy sauce [ all-natural ingredients ]. Throwing a handful of veggies in the sauce to add flavor & nutrients is another healthy addition.

Oh, this post is not saying to eat pasta seven nights a week. Moderation, moderation, moderation!

    Have you ever tried Barilla Protein Plus? It has 17g of protein. Would you recommend that? :)
