Ultimate Pasta Comparison

 
Ultimate Pasta Comparison



First of all, all pasta is healthy and yummy.

But second of all, it’s good to choose wisely, especially if taste wise, different pastas are equivalent to you. See where you can get the most bang for your buck - based on your personal preferences!

If a pasta is considered “starchy”, I would personally count it as my one starch per day. I noted below which ones were not starchy.

And! These are all per 2 oz servings.
