THREE BEAN SPAGHETTI SALAD WITH CREAMY CHUTNEY 1

Did you all know that October is National Pasta month? I’ll admit that I am not one who typically keeps up with all the various national what have you’s, which by the way to some is tantamount to sacrilege. As my girlfriend, Tammy likes to say,” Your hard drive is already full Red.” Well I do have a few themed months that make me giddy with anticipation, such as chocolate month, peanut butter month, those two months combined daily totally works as well, egg month (if you don’t know why you need to follow my Instagram), cheesecake month and yes pasta month!

If there is pasta anything within a 500-yard radius, I am generally giddy.  Trust me even though I have to be vigilant with which grains I now eat I still make room for a pasta dish or two as a reward. Hey, I am part Italian and zero pasta is not an option in my family. Like me, you may not be able to over indulge as you used to but that’s all good especially if you are being conscientious and eating healthy carbs such a Dreamfields Pasta.

  • Dreamfields is made using durum wheat semolina in North Dakota. That’s why it has the same delicious taste and texture of traditional pasta.
  • One cup cooked serving of Dreamfields pasta (2-oz dry) provides 5 grams of dietary fiber and 7 grams of protein per serving.
  • Dreamfields also adds a natural plant fiber called inulin that helps support better digestion.
