Pasta, low-fat recipes

The spaghetti, macaroni, noodles and pastas are generally great for the heart. They contain very little fat and no cholesterol (except egg noodles) and are rich in complex carbohydrates, which makes them "fillers" when you feel really hungry. Best of all is that they are quick and easy to prepare and there are plenty of varieties according to the sauce to serve with.

Remember that cheese, oil or cream sauce significantly increase the fat content, therefore, use light sauces, made with tomatoes or other vegetables.

These recipes sound super tasty, although I'm not really sure the ravioli recipe is really "low-fat". I've always thought of raviolis as being one of the "worst" italian foods, or pastas, around, because they were always stuffed with pretty fatty foods. Even though it may not be low-fat, it still sounds amazing@!!!
