    I too would say WW pasta although very often I have read that the ingredient themselves play such a vital role. For example if the ingredient on standard white pasta says nothing but Durum Wheat or Durum Wheat Semolina that that is usually considered fine. I have seen a lot of debates/discrepencies though so anyone with more details please chime in

    What meal, when, why, with what, how much, etc.

    All of those factors will equate to whether or not it's a good idea or not.

    It's okay if you're bulking... Whole wheat pasta does have a lot of fiber. If you're cutting, I would stay away from pasta except maybe PPWO...

    Regarding the issue of normal pasta which has only one ingredient, either Durum Wheat or Durum Wheat Semolina I am talking about PPWO around midday, along with a very lean protein source, an amount supplying 45-50g carbs. The problem I have is that the only so called wholewheat pasta here in SA looks darker than the normal pasta and says "Durum Wheat and fiber" in other words I do not think they use a different ingredient, simply add the fiber.

    Oops, sorry - on the WW pasta you get here it does not say "Durum Wheat and fiber" it says "Durum Wheat and bran" so I think they simply add bran to the normal pasta mix before drying.

    If you mixed some egg whites with a couple of scoops of unflavored whey, roll it out, cut it into thin strips, and boiled it, would it taste like pasta? Drizzle a tablespoon of flax seed oil, add pepper and garlic for a sauce. I’m not sure if boiling whey kills some of the protein content…If it kills half, just use twice as much powder…

    Basically it’s whey pasta…I might try that this weekend.

    It would be made w/whey protein and egg whites.

    It's not regular pasta.

    Mmmmmm, I'd have to look into that, I can't say for SURE.

    I don't believe so, but I dunno.

    Initially I thought 'Nah, why would it.' but then don't whey manufacturers go on about low heat production methods so as to not degrade the whey? (Or am I off on a wild tangent there? )

    Interesting - Let us know your findings SC.
