A whole wheat pasta taste test
When TV chefs praise the taste of whole-grain pasta, you know it must be good.
The best new types are nutty and firm, not gluey like older ones.
Dress them with spicy tomato sauce or hearty spinach-and-walnut pesto.
Some “super” pastas have extras like flax seed or legume powder, which can ruin the taste.  Look for durum,
spelt, or farro wheat pasta.
