I personally used to hate whole wheat pasta, I started doing a mix of 80% white 20% whole wheat so I would at least get some nutrients in. Then I moved up to 50/50, Sometimes I do straight up whole wheat but to do a mix makes it harder to notice the difference!

Brown rice pasta is alright, not great though. If you don't like whole wheat pasta I don't think you will like it but you should try it anyways, you'll never know if you don't try;) I am not a big grain eater but I know there are a lot of pasta's made from all different grains-buckwheat, kamut etc. You could look into some of those and maybe find one you like.

Brown rice is a great natural grain for dinner dishes.
Buy natural brown rice as compared to "enriched" or "fortified" rice that some of these big companies like to do to their products. Pretty much all these companies did was take natural grain, refine them by striping away all their nutrients, vitamins, and minerals to get a better colour and texture of the product (white pasta), and then add them back into the products and put labels like "enriched" or "fortified". The process compromises the nutritional value of the food.

I like the taste of brown rice but I usually add some tamari or low-sodium soy sauce to for a little more flavour.

I recently made the Portobello Mushroom Stroganoff from the Clean Eating magazine's web site. The taste of the sauce was great, but the whole-wheat egg noodles ruined it for me. I can't hardly stand most wheat pasta. Does brown rice pasta taste better? It isn't mentioned as often as wheat pasta. Is it not as good for you?
