Is pasta fattening?

Pasta alone will not make you fat.  Excess calories create excess fat. Pasta is a good complex carbohydrate food.  Skip the heavy cream and butter sauces to trim back the calorie content of the meal and choose nutrient-rich pasta “partners” that are high in fiber or protein and low in unhealthy fats, such as fresh herbs, vegetables, beans, and lean poultry.
