Whole Wheat Pasta

Truthfully, I have not been a fan. But semolina based pasta has absolutely no nutritional value whatsoever. When I looked at the packaging, I realized I was eating empty calories so I decided to give wheat pasta another try.

Whole Foods actually makes a good quality, inexpensive organic wheat pasta. You do have it cook it well otherwise it has that 'raw' taste that you really want to avoid. Unlike other pastas, you do not want to take it out al dente because it will taste undercooked, and you definitely don't want that when eating a good pasta dish.

I personally find that the whole wheat pasta enhances the overall flavor of the dish.
