Pasta was once considered to be fattening and have very little nutritional value. Nutritional experts now realize the value of pasta in our diet. Grain based foods, such as pasta, are a good source of fiber and complex carbohydrates. The carbohydrates provide our bodies with vitamins, minerals and energy. The carbohydrates come mainly in the form of easily digestible starches. The starch is absorbed slowly by the body, which results in a long lasting feeling of satisfaction in your appetite. Pasta is a good choice for athletes and others that need energy to sustain them for long periods of time.
For individuals that are concerned about their carbohydrate intake, there are low-carb pastas available. The amount of carbohydrates contained in these pastas may vary slightly from one brand to the next but they contain significantly less carbohydrates than regular pasta. The low carbohydrate pastas contain 5 to 10 carbohydrates in comparison to 40 to 45 in regular pasta.
We hope that you will enjoy all of the following pasta dishes here at TriniGourmet.com :)

There is something about the dishes that I’ve tried so far from America’s master chef Mario Batali. Something very clean, simple and almost spartan. I really appreciate how his recipes allow the flavours of his ingredients to shine, and how he creates an interplay of […]
