Pasta is a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine.Pasta, especially whole wheat pasta, is known to have several health benefits. Whole wheat contains considerable amounts of minerals such as magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, zinc, selenium and manganese. Minerals are important for the body because they help with the structure of bones, regulate heart beat, maintain muscle, and take part in regulating cell growth.

Another benefit of eating pasta is that it provides niacin (Vitamin B3). This vitamin is essential for bodily functions such as converting carbohydrates into glucose, which produces energy for the body.The amount of protein in pasta depends on the type of flour used to manufacture it. If it is made from durum wheat, the pasta contains protein and gluten. Pasta is considered to be a good source of nutrition for vegetarians because it contains protein comprising six of the nine essential amino acids.

Pasta is generally a simple dish, but comes in large varieties because it is a versatile food item. There are many types and sizes of pasta and it also has different methods to cook.
