Looking to make an easy healthy switch? Opting for whole-wheat pasta over regular white pasta will do the trick. Going for whole grains adds fiber, vitamins E and B, protein, healthy fats, and antioxidants to your spaghetti and meatballs. Whole-wheat flour is more nutritionally complete because it contains all three parts of the grain, while white flour bleaches away everything but the starch. To get the most out of your dinner, read the package carefully to make sure it’s 100 percent whole wheat.
