You know how all the docs say we're supposed to be eating whole-wheat pasta instead of the normal, much-more-palatable semolina variety? Well, I don't know about you, but I can't stand the texture of whole-wheat pasta. It feels like you're eating chewy licorice coated with fine-grade sandpaper.

But I have finally found an awesome alternative:




Barilla Plus, which comes in all sizes and shapes. It looks like whole-wheat pasta, but it's largely made from lentils and flax seed and oats and chickpeas (garbanzo beans to my older readers), which means ... drumroll here ... EACH SERVING ACTUALLY HAS 17 GRAMS OF PROTEIN! And while the texture doesn't exactly replicate the slick white pasta it is a far cry from the awful whole-wheat product.

WOW....this is really worth spreading the news! 17 grams of protein is no laughing matter. I'm about to start a high protein/low carb diet because that's what works for me (what with having a Type A personality and all that). Thanks Ad...I'm sincerely glad to hear about this....I'm gonna get some a dat!

Barilla Plus is recommended as part of the Sonoma Diet (which, IMHO, is the best diet out there). It is good stuff.
