Smart Taste Healthy Pasta

Updated on March 30, 2008

If you're looking for a healthier and more nutritious alternative to traditional white pasta, consider giving Smart Taste pasta from Ronzoni a try. Pasta is something I have all but eliminated from my diet over the last few years, in an effort to reduce my consumption of "empty" carb calories.

I've tried whole wheat versions, but really don't care for them. Lately, however, I've noticed that several companies are marketing pasta products with enhanced nutritional value, so I decided to experiment with one of them. I chose Smart Taste by Ronzoni, and was quite pleasantly surprised to learn just how tasty this modern, improved version of traditional pasta really is. I tried the thin spaghetti. You can also get Ronzoni Smart Taste in several other varieties, including Elbow Macaroni, Spaghetti, Penne, and Rotini.

You certainly can't describe Ronzoni Smart Taste as being filled with empty calories. This delicious pasta is rich in fiber and calcium. A serving of Smart Taste has just as much calcium as a cup (8 ounces) of milk, and it has three times the fiber of regular pasta. Ronzoni Smart Taste has fewer calories than regular pasta, and is free from preservatives, cholesterol and sodium. Even though it's rich in fiber and calcium, it tastes exactly like traditional pasta.

If you don't tell your family members that you've switched to a healthier version of their favorite pasta, they'll likely never even realize that anything has changed! Smart Tastes by Ronzoni literally looks and tastes exactly like regular pasta. You don't have to follow any special preparation instructions, either. Simply boil the pasta following the package directions, which are identical to those for all types of pasta.

Smart Nutrition

When you switch to Ronzoni Smart Taste, you can be confident that you're making a sound nutritional decision on behalf of your family. Children and adults alike can benefit from increasing consumption of both calcium and fiber. Statistics from the American Academy of Pediatrics indicate that the vast majority of children don't consume enough calcium on a daily basis.

Many of the health problems commonly experienced by American children and adults are attributed, at least in part, to consumption of insufficient quantities of dietary fiber. Increasing fiber consumption may help reduce the risks of certain types of cancer, and can also play an important control in weight management. Since eating fiber results in a feeling of fullness, those who consume enough fiber often eat fewer calories than those who don't get enough dietary fiber.

Serving Ronzoni Smart Taste to your family is a healthy decision that you can feel good about. There's no reason to feel guilty for enjoying pasta when you're getting the calcium and fiber your body needs in order to function at peak capacity while also enjoying a tasty and delicious meal.
