Pasta with corn in Indian style



Pasta is kids favorite food, the best thing about the pasta is it absorbs the flavor very well, when you cook in any kind of sauce and tastes different even with a slight variation in the recipe. Do you think pasta is good or bad? I did a little research on nutrient facts on pasta and found out that pasta is neither good nor bad. It depends on the way you cook, how often you eat and what kind of ingredients you use in cooking.

Now a days different kinds of pastas are available in the market  among them soy pasta is the best!!! The other grain pastas are also good, here you can see the information of nutrient facts in a dry pasta, the good thing about pastas is they give you minimum of 8% fiber. Athletes eat pasta when they are preparing for a marathon, this is because the starch in the pasta releases energy slowly and for a long time they do not feel hungry!!!

    I've been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
