Whats the difference between dried pasta and fresh pasta?

0

Fresh pasta contains eggs and additional water so it takes less time to cook than dried pasta. But fresh pasta can add more cholesterol-raising saturated fat and sodium to your meal if it’s stuffed with cheese and meat. For instance, one-cup serving of President’s Choice Lombardia Gorgonzola and Walnut ravioli delivers 6 grams of saturated fat – nearly one-third of a day’s worth – and 510 milligrams of sodium. Read labels to compare brands. If you don’t have time to make pasta sauce, what should you look for on labels? Ideally, choose a tomato sauce for a good source of vitamins A and C. Low in fat and calories, tomato sauce is also an excellent source of lycopene, an antioxidant linked with protection from prostate cancer. But keep in mind that add-ins like cheese, beef and cream add calories and saturated fat. Look for a product with no more than 65 calories, 1 gram saturated fat, and 400 milligrams of sodium per one-half cup (125 ml) serving.
