When I picture a dish of pasta, I automatically start drooling. I absolutely love pasta! It is the yummiest thing we borrowed from the Italians; personally I would cast my vote for pasta over pizza! Oh yes, absolutely, I LOVE PASTA!!!
But the problem is, every time I eat pasta I feel incredibly guilty. Along with being mouth watering and delicious, it is one of the most fattening (non-sweet) foods we know of!
A friend of mine experimented with making a healthy pasta recipe and she’s allowed me to share it with all my fellow pasta-lovers! So cheers to pasta! Have fun eating this pasta with a guilt-free conscience.
