In case it wasn’t clear, at National Pasta we’re passionate about pasta! That’s just one of the reasons why we work diligently to provide you with fresh, quality pasta made with Canadian-sourced ingredients. There’s so much to love about pasta; here are some of our favourite reasons why we keep it stocked in our own home kitchens.

Pasta nourishes the body. It contains carbohydrates, which are nutrients that our body converts into energy. And it’s low in fat! Depending on how you dress it, of course. Choose pastas made with whole grains and semolina flour, which are good sources of fiber and even protein. To add even more fuel to your meal, pasta is an ideal vessel for vegetables. Add a hearty tomato sauce and load up on peppers, mushrooms, and onions. Don’t forget the garlic. Boost protein with just about anything from meatballs to beans and everything in between. For an extra-healthy pasta meal get cooking with National Pasta’s Healthy Grains Red Lentil Rotini that packs 25 grams of protein per serving!

4 reasons to love pastaPasta makes for a most versatile meal. Cook a meal for 1 or 100 with ease, set up a buffet or sit-down dinner, chill out with pasta salad at a BBQ or picnic, and pack up leftovers of all kinds for a nourishing lunch tomorrow. Go heavy or light with marinara sauce, cream sauce, or toss your pasta in a bit of flavoured oil. Pasta compliments every vegetable that’s in season, and there’s a pasta for every fitness goal, dietary restriction, energy need, and craving. Not just a main event, grab a jar of sauce and you’ve got a pasta side dish ready to go!

Anyone can cook pasta. Truly, it’s that simple. Purchase a pre-made sauce, sauté some vegetables, stir in some cooked meat or plant proteins and you’ve got a complete meal in half an hour or less from start to finish. Experiments with homemade pasta sauces are fun for the whole family and voted most likely to succeed, even when based on a whim. And if you fear there’s nothing for dinner, but you’ve got pasta, you can find a recipe to suit the contents of your pantry, fridge, or freezer. No sauce? No problem! Grab your olive oil and spices and create a sauce-free masterpiece.

There’s a pasta suitable to celebrate every occasion. Having trouble choosing a birthday meal? Pick pasta. Going to a potluck? Take pasta. Bring a hearty pasta meal when you visit a family with a new baby. Hosting the family reunion? Set up a pasta bar. Not only is a delicious pasta meal deceptively easy to supply, it’s also incredibly satisfying because it is the ultimate comfort food whether smothered with meat and cheese or gently tossed with cherry tomatoes and greens in a delicate dressing.
