Whole Wheat Pasta

Last night I decided to try a recipe from Vegetarian Times called “Pasta with garlicky white beans and Swiss chard.” I thought it was pretty healthy sounding but I had never tried whole wheat pasta. I figured it would taste like some nasty imitation of the real thing. But it didn’t. It tasted just like regular pasta. Here’s the important point, though, regular pasta has 210 calories and 2 grams of fiber per two ounce serving and whole wheat pasta has 180 calories and 5 grams of fiber per two ounce serving. This is an easy switch to make which will reduce calories and increase fiber.
