Pasta is perfect for people who want to eat healthier, more nutritious and satisfying meals. Per cup, some enriched varieties of pasta are a good source of nutrients such as iron and B-vitamins. Besides, wholewheat pasta can contribute up to 25% of daily fibre needs in every one-cup portion. The complex carbohydrates in pasta also provide a slow release of energy, helping us to sustain our energy levels for longer periods of time.
Pasta is generally eaten with other nutrient-rich foods, such as fibre-filled vegetables and beans, fish, poultry and other lean meats. In some pasta dishes, there’s the added benefit of antioxidant-rich tomato puree or sauce too.
