Pasta alone will not make you fat. Calorie intake in excess of the body's energy needs can be stored as excess fat. Pasta is a good complex carbohydrate food. Watch the portion size and skip the heavy cream or butter based sauces to trim back the calorie content of the meal and choose nutrient rich pasta 'partners' that are high in fibre or protein and low in unhealthy fats, such as fresh herbs, vegetables, beans, and lean poultry.
