Hmmm...I've never heard of that. Good news for those who love pasta. All I know about pasta is it's good for energy because of all the carbohydrates in it. And it's not high in fat or calories. And having tomato sauce helps with vitamins from the tomato.

It's low in sodium, which means I can eat it. =) The doc put me on a low-sodium diet, and I desperately spent hours at the store trying to find things I could actually eat that didn't take hours to prepare, and pasta is one of the best things I've found so far.
