A healthy pasta meal is truly the sum of its parts, and features two key factors: what you pair with your pasta, and how much pasta you eat in a meal. Pasta’s versatility allows for almost endless preparations. It is a wonderful partner for almost any vegetable. The dish can be as simple as pasta + al dente vegetables + grated cheese + extra-virgin olive oil, or pasta + a cream sauce with roasted vegetables. Healthy pasta meals are a balance of pleasure and health!
