This isn't just healthy pasta (although it is that). It's delicious!!! My husband, who totally hates whole-wheat pasta (he'll eat whole-wheat bread, if pushed against the wall, but absolutely holds out against whole-wheat pasta) adores this. He prefers it to any other pasta. Now, if it's out of stock at the store, he grumbles and won't buy his old favorite brands as a substitute. I love that it tastes so good that we can serve a healthy pasta dinner for unsuspecting company without anyone asking what on earth we did to the food. We're thrilled to see that it will soon be available on Amazon so we can stock up!
This thin spaghetti is actually my favorite -- works for both spaghetti and angel hair dishes, and has a light taste and texture that fools non-health-foodies into thinking they're having unusually good ordinary pasta.

BARILLA FARFALLE PASTA and BARILLA PENNE PASTA are two forms of noodles, where the FARFALLE noodles have a bowtie shape, and the PENNE noodles are short tubes with slanted-cut ends. The FARFALLE noodles are smooth, while the PENNE noodles have long grooves. Both products are the same, in that a 100 gram serving provides 370 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, and 17 grams of protein. Those with a nutrition background will know that this is a heart-healthy product, because of the high ratio of protein to fat.
Another BARILLA noodle product, called MINI PENNE has a different numbers. Here, a 100 gram serving provides about 360 calories, which is about the same as the two products that I mentioned above, but the MINI PENNE product provides roughly half the fat and roughly half the protein. How could this be? For the adventuresome consumer who loves to scrutinize package labels, it can be seen that MINI PENNE is made only from wheat flour (with a dab of corn starch), while the...
