Here is where me and the Italians start to disagree. I absolutely love pasta but with a very high ranking on the glycemic index chart and a shockingly low nutritional content I opt for the darker kind. Whole wheat pasta is made from flour that contains the entire grain kernel which means that it’s rich in fiber and hasn’t been ripped off from all its healthy nutrients.
I do confess that when the first few whole grain pastas tiptoed out to the grocery stores I wasn’t jumping with joy due to taste explosions. BUT these days there are so many brands on the shelves and I even dare to say that a few of them tastes better than the plain boring white spaghetti, firm textured, nutty and with a slightly sweeter flavor.
