It’s not often that I would feature a white flour pasta…I rarely even buy pasta made with white flour. I’m a whole wheat kind of girl. :) Not to mention a Nutritionist, remember??

But this bionaturae traditional egg pasta just looks special. I know I bought it with something in mind, but a few months passed and finally it made it into a spaghetti & meatball dinner. Dare I say that it reminded me of home-made pasta?

My inexperienced fresh pasta palate, probably shouldn’t make that comparison. But I swear it came close.

Now I just have all the more reason to buy this pasta again. And even though it’s made with white flour it actually has a decent amount of protein (7 grams per serving) and I told you that it tastes amazing, right?

For a simple meal, I tossed some of the pasta with pesto and parmesan and let me just say…go get some. :)

    I usually go for whole wheat pastas, too, but sometimes you just need the real thing! Looks delish!

    What brand of wheat pastas do you recommend? I’ve tried a few, and it’s hard to find one that doesn’t taste like cardboard!

      Maybe I should do a little research and do a whole post on that!

    I’ve had those noodles before, and they are AMAZING! Topping them with homemade mushroom stroganoff was almost a trancendental experience. :)

    My kids could pretty much live on pasta, so I’ll have to try this one sometime. I like the protein stats!

      Yes, it would be a good way to get some protein into those all-noodle meals that kids seem to love so much!!

    Wow, that looks delicious. Homemade even! I’ve never seen fancy egg pasta before; I’ll have to keep an eye out for him. The protein stats are impressive too!

    White pasta… meh, just knowing when to indulge is key. I’d eat this in a heartbeat!

    I have to admit that I enjoy white pasta from time to time, or that made with semolina. For me it is cultural, just like white rice. I like to have the original. :) This looks delicious!

      The whole cultural thing is a really good point! I didn’t think about it that way!

    We first had this type of noodles in Italy, and loved them. I was so happy to find a close substitute here!!
