Organic Pasta Penne Rigate
Organic Pasta Penne Rigate — made from organic durum wheat, grown by farmers in South Italy.
Alce Nero was born in the Seventies, where the company embarked on a new and different way of farming: organic faming, which makes no use of chemical fertilisers and weed killers, which respects man, the earth, the environment… These young farmers began by growing grain crops, durum wheat in particular, which was transformed into semolina, giving rise to the first Alce Nero product: pasta!

When eaten in moderation, pasta can be part of a healthy diet. Whole-grain pasta may be a better choice for many, as it is lower in calories and carbs but higher in fiber and nutrients.
However, in addition to the type of pasta you pick, what you top it with is just as important.
Calories can stack up fast when adding high-fat, high-calorie toppings like cream-based sauces and cheeses. If you are watching your weight, go for a drizzle of heart-healthy olive oil, some fresh herbs or a few of your favorite veggies instead.
You can also add your choice of protein to your pasta to turn it into a balanced meal.
For instance, fish and chicken can add some extra protein to keep you feeling full and satisfied, while broccoli, bell peppers or tomatoes can provide nutrients and additional fiber.
Here are a few other ideas for healthy pasta dishes:
- Whole-wheat spaghetti with salmon, lemon and basil
- Vegetable baked ziti
- Pasta salad with feta, olives, tomatoes and kale
- Rotini with spinach-avocado sauce and chicken
