  • We have been doing only whole wheat for years. My daughter came home from school one day and was complaining that they had spaghetti for lunch. I questioned why the complaints because she loves pasta. She said "They use that gross spaghetti, the white stuff!"

  • We've used it and liked it a lot, but since our ped asked that we reduce gluten to control our son's Asperger's symptoms, we've gone to brown rice pasta. There's a really good brand with an Indian name that I can never remember...the logo has a bunny.

  • I use whole wheat pasta and brown rice. We started using it when my son went on a rice and bean diet. He gets 1 cup of either and 1/2 cup vegetables for lunch and supper, 1 cup grits or yogurt for breakfast and 3 cups of fresh fruit every day. Combine that with walking 3 miles a day and he loses 10 pounds a week.

  • Other than the occasional box of Annie's, I haven't bought white pasta in at least ten years. We use it the same way we would use any other pasta. I buy brown rice pastas, too.

  • gdiamante- you may know about this blog or may not crockpot cook but it is 365 days of slow cooking.Her daughter only eats gluten free,so all recipes are gluten free. We don't have that need but I like her comments and adjust.So far my kids like her food.

  • I rarely buy white pasta. I buy the whole wheat or whole grain and it isn't that bad, especially when there is sauce of some kind on it.
