We rarely think of pasta being a part of a healthy nutritious meal that's filled with healthy nutrients, but with Barilla pasta that's exactly what you get. Filled with fiber, Omega-3's, and high in protein, Barilla is the healthy pasta alternative for those carb cravings.

Barilla v. Traditional Pastas
This issue with most pastas is they are low in fiber and protein and aren't made from whole grains, so there is little nutritional value. Barilla, and especially the Barilla Plus Pasta is not only higher in fiber and protein, but also higher in Omega-3 fatty acids, which is a class of healthy fats that help lower the risk of heart disease. Barilla comes in angel hair, penne, elbows, and spaghetti.

Here's a Spaghetti recipe that is equal protein & carbs, low in fat, and an excellent meal!
