This is a good main dish for a normal diet because it has a good ammount of carbohydrates and is high in protein. It is also very high in Iron (32%), Vitamin C (27%), and Calcium (22%), all necessary for a balanced diet. There is not too much fat (considering that meat is being used), and of the 10.3 grams of fat, only 2.8 are saturated. It is also low in sodium, and high in niacin. We used whole wheat pasta, low fat yogurt, and less oil than usual to make this a more healthy meal (even though we could not indicate this in the ingredients) Unfortunately there is a lot of cholesterol, but if this is regarded as just one part of a balanced diet, it is still considered a healthy food.
