Whole Grain Pasta

This versatile ingredient works as a main or side dish—and nowadays, there’s a wide variety of noodles to accommodate all sorts of eating styles (from chickpea and black bean to whole wheat and gluten-free). Top it with jarred marinara sauce (or make your own using canned tomatoes) and some steamed or sautéed veggies, like broccoli, squash or peppers, or serve it cold. I usually whip up a big batch on the weekend and use it all week long.
