Let’s face it: Pastas (especially all of the easy pasta dishes we rely on during the week) have a bit of a bad rap. But does it deserve the demonization it receives?

Here’s some good news for pasta fanatics: Recently, Italian researchers published a study in the journal Nutrition & Diabetes suggesting that eating pasta does not cause weight gain and may even help you maintain a healthy weight.

But wait! There’s a catch: These results were reported when pasta was eaten as part of a healthy diet rich in good fats, fiber and vegetables. So don’t load up on buckets of Alfredo just yet.
