Whole Grain Pasta Confessions

I recently tried whole grain pasta for the first time. I was definitely one of those skeptics who looked at the brown color of it and thought it would be gross.

I was totally wrong.

It tasted the same as regular pasta, with just the slightest hint of that nutty wheat flavor.

Had some with a cream of celery soup sauce, which was great. Had some more with a mushroom based sauce. Also very good.

the slight hint of wheat actually paired really well with the mushroom flavors.

All in all, I was pleasantly surprised. I expected wheat bread flavor, but it wasn't like that at all.

Although, I have to confess it did not keep me full any longer than ordinary pasta. Not sure what that's all about.

The ultimate conclusion: whole grain pasta looks strange, but is actually quite good.
