Pasta Fits Twitter Party

In today’s hectic pace, it is often difficult to not only find time to prepare healthy meals for our families, but also to find foods that everyone will eat and that fit our budgets!  Thankfully, pasta fits all of these requirements.  With roughly 100 calories per half cup serving, very little sodium or fat and no cholesterol, pasta is an ideal foundation for building healthy meals. Pasta boosts energy, satisfies hunger, tastes great and can be prepared in countless delicious, reduced-calorie recipes. In addition, it is one of the most economical meals available to Americans. Pasta Fits into your healthy lifestyle, into a balanced diet, into a weight loss program, and into your busy days. It’s no wonder pasta was recently cited as one of America’s favorite foods!

Ready to enter to win amazing prizes and talk about the food we all love?  I hope to see you at the…
