I love my pasta and usually have about 100g to 125g. Brown pasta fills you up for longer than the white stuff so I try to use that where I can. But sometimes if there is a good offer on the white pasta I just go for that.
Without a doubt go for 'brown everytime'. Remember 'brown is best!' This is also applicable to bread and rice etc.
Basically what happens is that the white rice/bread/pasta etc are full of calories while being devoid of nutritional values and fibre. Such products contain sweetners, preservatives and other unhealthy additives.
The are highly refined and processed which causes them to lose most of their nutritional value and fibre. Thanks to this processing and additives unfortunately they become temptingly tasty! However they can create dramatic surges in insulin levels which may result in overworking your pancreas, storage of fat, diabetes, heart disease, overweight and even obesity problems. It is more important than we realise to choose brown over white.
I usually measure out about 100g of pasta unless I'm having it with a really meaty sauce, in which case 75-80g. (I know with SW you don't have to weigh - but I always accidentally cook way too much if I don't weigh out my pasta/rice!)
I have both wholewheat and white pasta in my cupboard and eat whichever I fancy as I like the taste of both, though I am trying to eat more wholewheat as it's better for you and I'm finding it fills me up more than white as well - bonus!
I don't ever weigh my pasta. I usually use the tricolour for pasta shapes, although I am trying to have more wholemeal pasta, like Britmum I have PCOS so unrefined pasta/rice is supposed to be better for you.
brown spagetti is the sutff but general wholemeal pasta mings so stick with the white if i'm not having spagetti. Brown rice is like chewing a sweaty foot, though j'adore wild rice(though not checked where it lays on sw). I dont eat a lot of the carb heaving things like pasta, rice and potatoes(even though i'm green) so when i do have em i like them to be things i like
