Eat Like an Italian NHANES Study
If you think avoiding pasta is good for your diet, think again. According to new research, eating pasta the Med way—as part of a healthy and balanced traditional Mediterranean-style diet with properly portioned pasta dishes in moderation—may improve your diet quality by over 20 percent, compared to not eating pasta at all. What's more, this isn't the first time pasta research has come out saying this! Seems like it's about time to consider some pasta recipes for your next meal!
So, start eating like an Italian and enjoy your pasta tossed with other healthy ingredients. Try tossing asparagus, cherry tomatoes, grilled chicken, a touch of olive oil and basil with pasta for a refreshing and healthy dinner for you and your family.
