Are all pasta recipes bad for you?
Pasta has a bad reputation of being unhealthy. In truth, the noodles as-is are fine, when eaten in moderation. The reason some pasta recipes are unhealthy is because they’re served with heavy, cream-based pasta sauces, fatty proteins, or too many calorie-heavy toppings like cheese.
Here, you will find plenty of healthy pasta dishes that are delicious options for a quick lunch, side dish, or dinner tonight!
