Convenient Food: Fresh Pasta

4. Fresh Pasta

Don’t limit yourself to dried pastas; many grocery stores carry fresh pasta in the refrigerated section. One of the healthiest choices among fresh pasta is the 100% whole-wheat variety. Made with whole-wheat flour, this type counts towards the recommended 3 servings of whole grains you need a day; plus, it provides a healthy dose of fiber. Stuffed pastas that contain cheese, such as this ravioli, have a higher fat and calorie level, but when prepared the right way can be a good option.

Fresh pasta recipes: Quick Crisp Ravioli with Roasted Tomato Sauce, Pasta with Fresh Tomato-Basil Sauce, or Warm Tortellini and Cherry Tomato Salad
