Wow Wow Wow!!! What a bowl of pasta! I do not know why most of the people are afraid of pastas…they won’t bite you xD. Just kidding!

Pastas can be high in carbohydrates but please,  DO NOT forbid yourself of indulging some foods. For example, you can have pastas but in smaller portions and have benefits from it like happiness, of course, and weight control. After sushi, pastas are my favorite food for lunch or dinner.
