Whole wheat pasta, savour this healthy Italian delicacy, which is also a rich source of protein and fibre! The Italian diet which is known for its high-calorie pasta preparations and its cheesy sauces has been converted into this "96 calorie (per serving), high fibre version". As the name suggests, whole wheat pasta has been used instead of plain flour pasta, mixed with a scrumptious tomato sauce and loads of veggies that you’ll surely love.

So creamy and tasty whole wheat pasta, the crunchiness of the corn and capsicum is excellent, and is also healthy. Just loved it.
