This is a pasta that can be eaten at lunch or dinner. Whole grain pasta would be preferred, but I could not add that as an ingredient. The benefits of this food are high carbohydrates and fiber, with low sugar as well. It provides a decent amount of protein. However, it does not provide adequate amounts of the daily vitamins/minerals, except for Vitamin C. To increase the amount of vitamins/minerals, one might add a few more vegetables. Additionally, this food as a high amount of sodium. Overall, this food serves well as a main course, although it must be balanced with low sodium foods and foods high in vitamins/minerals. For example, it could be complemented with fruit, which would create a balanced meal.
