Tips for healthy pasta meals

  • Use whole-grain pasta. Whole grain pasta is a healthier option than white pasta, as it contains more fiber and nutrients.
  • Choose a healthier sauce. Instead of a heavy cream-based sauce, you can make a sauce with vegetables, such as tomato or spinach.
  • Add fresh vegetables. Adding in fresh vegetables like zucchini, mushrooms, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and onions adds bulk and nutrition to your pasta dish.
  • Leaner meats such as chicken, turkey, and lean ground beef provide protein without adding too much saturated fat.
  • Use broth or reduced-fat milk. Use low-sodium broth or reduced-fat milk instead of cream to add flavor to your dish.
  • Limit the amount of cheese: We all love a good cheesy pasta! It’s true cheese adds flavor but also adds fat and calories to your pasta dinner. Try using only a small amount of cheese or a low-fat variety.
  • Herbs and spices can add flavor to your pasta dish without the extra calories.
  • Skip the bread! Instead of having bread or garlic bread along with your pasta, opt for a side of steamed vegetables or a salad so you keep carbs under control.
