1/2 a cup of cooked pasta (al dente) is a good portion for pasta.

Why cook it al dente? It's all about the sugar...

The article makes good sense. Been eating Whole grain pasta whenever possible and
usually 1/2 cup serving size. Some meat, maybe one meatball or small amount of another protein with it.

That is interesting. I wonder why pasta al dente is more healthy than that which is cooked longer....???
