One of the first questions people ask me when they ask how I lost 100lbs was did I cut anything out? More specifically, did I cut out carbs. The simple answer is, I didn’t cut out any food group – I just watched my portions. Pasta was very much a part of my “diet” (oh how I love pasta). Not only did I watch my portion sizes, but I made some healthier ingredient swaps to make my pasta dishes lighter.

This month I hosted the Pasta Please challenge from Tinned Tomatoes and I set the theme as healthy pasta or dishes that have been lightened up. There were lots of lovely and healthy pasta dishes that were entered and I have shared a round-up of these below. Remember, you don’t have to cut anything out (unless you have dietary requirements of course), you just have to get a bit smarter with your cooking and make a few small changes. *All the titles are clickable and open in a new tab*
