Healthy Eating with Pasta – A Dream Come True It’s possible to enjoy great-tasting pasta without a twinge of guilt. Whether you’re watching your carbs, concerned about blood sugar or just want to eat healthier, visit the pasta aisle. Mediterranean Penne Salad is a delicious way to have your pasta while still being mindful of what you eat. Made with Dreamfields Pasta, you get the authentic old-world taste and al dente texture of traditional white pasta, but with twice the fiber and only five grams digestible carbohydrates. Plus, the unique high fiber, low digestible carb combination won’t spike your blood sugar and keeps you feeling fuller longer. The recipe brings together a combination of favorite Mediterranean ingredients –olives, feta cheese, capers and pine nuts – accented with a hummus, olive oil and lemon juice “dressing.” Penne rigate is a short, tubular pasta with quill-shaped ends (penne) and ridges (rigate). The hollow center and ridges of the pasta perfectly capture the hearty hummus dressing, enhancing every scrumptious bite.For more recipes and information about healthy eating, visit http://www.dreamfieldsfoods.com/.
