Pasta Pantry mentioned that,

“Pasta is part of a well-balanced diet, with current Australian Government guidelines suggesting 35% of our daily calorie intake should come from complex carbohydrates such as pasta. Combine pasta with lean protein and vegetables for a complete meal that puts you well on the path to hitting those dietary goals!”
