  • I had to switch to whole wheat pasta for my digestive health. I absolutely love pasta but because of IBS, the regular kind just wouldn’t work for me. I have tried a few different recipes and this one by far tastes the best. I don’t taste much of a different at all and the sauce compliments the pasta perfectly!
