Pasta is delicious but it is not always the healthiest option on any given menu. So, I wanted to see if there was a way to change that. Can we make our pasta healthier by doing the LEAST amount possible? Call this a hack, but I think I've found the SECRET to healthier pasta. What is it? You'll have to watch to find out!

      @brutus the vandal ye but queen Dani (who has issues with carb intake) will eat more carbs thinking reheating it will make it healthy but since it has close to no difference and they will be eating more of it he/she could die have heart issues or die younger

    This is so much fun to know sinse I actually eat pasta by reheating it because if you keep it in the fridge for a couple of hours the sauce gets absorbed into the pasta and it's much more delicious that way so yay I found a better reason to give people now🙃

    As some one who worked at the olive garden, I can say rest assured your pasta is reheated every time you order it. The cooks go in early in the morning boil there pasta for the day. Weigh it bag it and when it's ordered it's reheated. Enjoy!

    I have noticed on TV, pasta is shown as a big bowl of pasta with a little bit of 'sauce' on top, yet her at home (in Aus if that matters), pasta is always outweighed by the 'sauce' which is mostly meat and vegetables.

    I don't know if it's accurate to call the pasta "healthier". It's more like we're making the food less efficient and, as a consequence, less fattening. If we still have to digest it then we're making our bodies do more work for the calories, thus wearing them down faster.

    Im sorry but to be frank this video is bullshit. The problem isn’t that pasta is high in carbs (carbs are NOT bad for you) its that it is VERY calorie dense and it’s calories in calories out you can’t break the laws of thermodynamics lol Adjusting the temperature will not alter the calories of it.

    The thing about pasta....yes it's high carb, but your body has to work really hard to break it down......making the effect of it a lot better than bread or potatoes. Eat the biggest chunkiest pasta you can find :) And yes......1 serving of pasta is shockingly small! In Italy, pasta is a side dish....not the whole meal.
