    It's any wholemeal pasta, regardless of the shape!

    Yep as Jaylou said any shaped pasta as long as it's wholemeal. I'd like some in the shape and taste of pizza...:8855:

    I haven't but I really should, I need to go shopping later so I'll look for that bread mix that can be HeB. I've never made a pizza in my life, fat ones or thin ones!

    It reminds me though of a discussion with my son who is the pickiest eater I've ever know....

    Son-Mum why can't they make healthy food taste like nice food? They have made chocolate flavoured chewing gum.
    Me-I don't know but they should.
    Son-Well it seems to me that scientists can do all sorts of clever things so why aren't they helping us?
    Me-(Pondering the yummy flavours you could add to vegetables)Well maybe it's just too hard and they can't figure it out.
    Son-No I think it's because they want us to be fat so we buy all the slimming food. When I'm a scientist I'm going to create really tasty vegetables and everyone will think I'm amazing.
    Me-Well hurry up and get on with it!

    He was 8 at the time.
