Low Calorie, High Fiber Pasta? Ronzoni Smart Taste Makes Healthy Eating Delicious

Some families really struggle to get their children to eat veggies. Thankfully, our kids love most vegetables and rarely put up a fight. I, on the other hand, HATE vegetables.. in fact I joke that I'm allergic to the word *vegetable*.

Recently our family had the opportunity to try the new Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta. This enriched white pasta is a great tasting, healthy meal solution for the entire family. It's packed with three times the fiber and calcium than traditional pasta, which many studies show are the two nutrients lacking the most in people's diets. Plus, Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta is lower in fat and calories, which means it's all around healthier for you and your family.

If you count points with Weight Watchers, new Smart Taste pasta from Ronzoni is only 3 points per 2 oz. serving- (which is at least one point less than other pasta brands)! Ronzoni Smart Taste comes in 5 varieties: Spaghetti, Elbows, Rotini, Thin Spaghetti, and Penne Rigati.

I was worried that the kids (or I) would notice a difference in texture like you do with most whole grain pastas, but as soon as I tasted the pasta to see if it was ready to be served I realized that the texture was almost identical to regular pasta. Smooth and delicious, nobody noticed that I had switched brands. I enjoyed the health benefits of this pasta so much, that the next two times I went grocery shopping, I picked up Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta instead of my regular type of pasta.

This "Super Mom" video cracked us up.. this reminds me of the struggles my parents had with me when I was little:

Don't go to extremes to get your kids to eat healthier foods, instead try the new Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta. If you've tried it already, I'd love to hear your opinions on it!
