I tried using whole wheat spaghetti and didn't like it, mushy. But I did try whole wheat penne and it was great. I'm trying to be more aware of the type of carbs I am eating. Any thoughts?

What if the hokey pokey is really what it's all about?

Try an organic Spelt pasta. Spelt is a whole grain, lower glycemic than whole wheat(doesn't spike your insulin like whole wheat does)and it's got a milder, not as "chewy" taste.

There are 2 very important things to note when eating whole wheat pasta:

1. Not all pastas are created equally. This means if you try one and you don't like it, try a different brand and you might be surprised. Personally, I have tried just about every brand in our local supermarket and the best one I have found is Catelli Healthy Harvest.

2. I can't explain it, but for some reason, when cooking whole wheat pasta you must follow the package directions exactly. It may seem like a lot of water for the amount of pasta you are cooking, but it does seem to allow the pasta to turn out the way it is supposed to.

Hope this helps.

Yuck! I had angel hair wheat pasta and it tasted like cardboard. Thanks for the suggestion though...
