NOTES & FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CAN VEGANS EAT PASTA?

Generally, pasta is 100% vegan and contains no animal ingredients. Simply check the package label, and make sure pasta doesn’t contain any eggs.

IS PASTA HEALTHY?

YES. Pasta is definitely part of a healthy diet, as long as it’s eaten in moderation.

And If you switch to whole grain pasta you’ll get more natural fiber and micronutrients than white pasta.
Fiber is an important part of your diet, it helps control blood sugar and reduces appetite. Extra bonus? Research shows that eating three servings of whole-grain food per day helps you to live longer. 

Plus, if you load your whole-grain pasta with delicious seasonal vegetables your pasta dish will be packed with nutrients and definitely healthy.

WHAT’S THE BEST PASTA?

I love pasta and I take the whole thing quite seriously. Yes, I’m Italian ?.

First things first, pasta brand matters, and when you chose pasta, have a proper look at the label and go for durum wheat semolina pasta, possibly made with brass or bronze dies. Needless to say, cook it until al dente!

The premium quality pasta is a bit more expensive than basic pasta, but it’s resilient, it has a more robust texture and holds sauces beautifully.
I love cooking on a budget, but cheap overcooked spaghetti makes me feel so sad!
