All these answers are wonderful. You can't lose with any of them. I agree with everyone here. In case you still some on hand before you pick up the cleaner pasta, just make sure you pay attention to portion size. One serving of pasta is a cup. It's not very much but I'm used to it now.
Believe in yourself, and you can accomplish anything!!
All of these replies are so great--this team is really moving with healthy ideas and teaching each other about nutritionally superior choices--it will impact the world! I love this.
Another idea for unwanted "unclean" foods, not the most exciting maybe, is to put it in your compost. That way it won't get wasted. Nature will turn it into something useful.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
If you don't want to throw it away or give it away, mixing it in with lots of veggies and lean protein is an excellent idea. Also mixing it in with whole wheat, multigrain or buckwheat pasta is also a great idea. Whole wheat pasta does take a little longer to cook, though. So, if you are going to use both in the same dish then start the whole wheat pasta for a few minutes before throwing the white pasta into the pot.
Well, there are two answers to that. One of them is that getting to where you're eating clean is a process. There's also no requirement that you eat 100% clean (I don't), so you should do what works for you. Switching over gradually, especially when you're feeding a family, is the best way to make the transition.
The second answer, purely to the question you asked, is that white pasta has had some of the nutritional components removed and there's no way to go backward and make it clean. There's no reason, however, that you can't combine it with other ingredients (like tons of veggies) that are clean. You could combine it with whole wheat, rice, etc. pasta as you transition to them.
