Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Whole wheat pasta is a healthier option over pasta made from refined flour. Not only does it provide all complex carbohydrates, but also provides long lasting energy levels. Being loaded with fiber improves overall digestive health, improves functional capacity and also stronger bones and immunity. Additional to its benefits is the presence of the super- herbs basil and parsley. These anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial foods are high not only in vitamin C and vitamin K but also iron and calcium. The presence of these ingredients makes the whole wheat pasta in the red sauce more flavorful and energizing.
