(NAPSA) - Say good-bye to grit. Replacing regular pasta with a whole grain variety no longer means sacrificing great taste. The new generation of multi-grain pastas offers whole grain nutrition with delicious taste and texture.
Containing more than 80 percent whole grains, one serving of the multi-grain pastas from Mueller's, Golden Grain and Heartland provide 100 percent of the USDA daily recommendation of whole grains and are certified by the American Heart Association. Available in penne, rotini and spaghetti shapes, their subtle toasty and nutty taste complements both white and red sauces. Here are some ways to enjoy them:
Spinach Rotini Salad
Cook rotini per package directions. Rinse with cold water and drain. Combine all remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add pasta and mix well.
Confetti Penne Pasta
Cook penne per package directions. Drain, cover and set aside.
In large skillet, heat oil and add garlic, red pepper, celery, mushrooms and lemon pepper seasoning. Cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add cooked pasta, broccoli, chicken and broth to skillet.
Toss to heat through and serve immediately.
Baked Spaghetti Supper
Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain, cover and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add garlic, onion, peppers and basil. Saute 3 minutes. Add sauce and sausage. Simmer 5 minutes. Spread 1 cup of the sauce mixture into bottom of a 13" x 9" baking dish. Layer half of the spaghetti, half of the remaining sauce mixture, 1 cup Mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Repeat layering.
Bake for 15-20 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
