Whole wheat pasta

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Peter McFerrin, Apr 19, 2006.


  1. This stuff is the real deal. I just cooked myself up a batch and I found that it:

    1. tastes better than regular pasta, and
    2. is a lot heavier on a calorie-for-calorie basis, so it fills you up faster and you eat less.

    With that and all the extra fiber and protein, I think I may never go back to regular pasta again.

  3. It does taste good and it is good for you. Better than regular pasta. Friendly carbs. I started eating it about 8 weeks ago as part of my new work-out/diet routine. Highly recommended.

    I enjoy whole wheat pasta. Doesn't taste much different, certainly easy to get used to!

    Unfortunately my school only serves the white stuff, so I go whole wheat back home.

    forget about all the healthy-shmealthy stuff about it, whole wheat pasta just tastes better, imo.

    I tried it, and it's too dry and grainy for me. I tried mixing it 50/50 with regular pasta and it wasn't bad, but I could still pick out the wheat.
     
  14. Good stuff!

    I had to give up on a lot of starchy foods and regular pasta was one of them. Whole Wheat rules.

    i'm eating pasta right now!!!!! it's so good (i got my wisdom teeth pulled a little less than a week ago and it's good to be eating real food again :))

    it's not wheat though :p

    i'm Chinese, and my family sometimes makes our own noodles. i'm not a fan of them, but they're alright.

    Since I first tried whole wheat I haven't gone back. The only other ones I eat are spinach pasta (like the Major mentioned) and sun-dried tomato pasta.
