Drop 5 Pounds with Healthy Pasta Recipes

By: Cooking Channel Staff

We here at Cooking Channel love our pasta. It's comforting, affordable, comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and is the perfect canvas to mix in just about any ingredients you can imagine. But it seems every silver lining has a cloud. Pasta, along with people who go to Diddy shows, gets a bad rap. "The carbs!" people cry out as they awaken, sweaty from a nightmare of being chased by giant noodles. It's time to relax and put pasta back into your diet.

Tune in to Drop 5 Lbs with Good Housekeeping today at 10:30am ET on Cooking Channel to get tips and healthy recipes (including the crowd-pleasing, vitamin-rich  Pasta Primavera pictured above) to help you say "yes" to pasta and even lose weight.
