Pasta was once considered to be fattening and have very little nutritional value. Nutritional experts now realize the value of pasta in our diet.

Pasta is a good choice for athletes and others that need energy to sustain them for long periods of time.

The low carbohydrate pastas contain 5 to 10 carbohydrates in comparison to 40 to 45 in regular pasta.
