Most of us have some spaghetti or linguine in our pantries. Here are a few ideas for making some tasty low fat meals with it. Try, for instance, this
Spaghetti with Shrimp and Tomato Sauce
or some Turkey Meatballs and Spaghetti
, or even this Spaghetti Bolognese
. And if you’re looking for something a little different, this Asian Chicken Noodle
dish makes a nice change.
Finally, a quick tip: consider switching to whole wheat pasta to boost your intake of fiber. The government's new dietary guidelines encourage us to eat at least three ounce-equivalents, or servings, of whole grains a day. An ounce-equivalent in the grain group would be a 1/2 cup of cooked pasta, rice or cereal, a slice of bread, or one cup of dry cereal.
