Chew on This: Use Your (Pasta) Noodle
Pump Up the Volume
One cup of cooked pasta can look puny all alone on a plate. Make it a meal with these smart suggestions from Tessa Stamper, RD, the executive chef at Noodles & Company.
1. Stir together cooked fusilli, roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, and a half-and-half mixture of beaten eggs and egg whites to make a frittata.
2. Cook half your usual amount of spaghetti, then make up the difference with sauteed kale and toss the two together with pesto.
3. Combine cold cooked penne with salsa, cilantro, crumbled cotija cheese, and lime juice for a pasta-and-taco salad mash-up.
