What's this all about?
We love whole grains! We have found that we prefer their flavor. They are also far healthier than the refined foods which characterize the typical modern diet.
Switching to whole grains helps maintain a low glycemic diet. That means you will have more sustainable energy levels throughout the day, and probably fewer problems with weight control.
We created this website with one goal: to build an online community of like-minded people who either share our enthusiasm about whole grains or just want to learn more about them.

You may have bumped into this recipe, adapted from Mario Batali's Holiday Food, at least once before. I'm likely the first person to try to persuade you to make it with whole grain pasta.
We discovered this recipe a few years ago and served it at a New Year's celebration. I remember that it paired quite nicely with grilled marinated rack of lamb. My wife especially likes this recipe and we revisit it on occasion. In recent years, we have started using whole wheat linguine. Whole wheat pastas are fairly common these days and you can even find them imported directly from Italy at your local wholesale club. It's a staple item in our home.
Some are skeptical of whole wheat pasta's texture and flavor and at times it can be a tough sell. This recipe is hearty and rich. It was made for whole wheat pasta. The texture and flavor of whole wheat compliment nicely the walnuts, bread crumbs, and Romano cheese, all of which give this recipe its distinct appeal.
In addition to whole wheat pasta and whole wheat bread crumbs, I further modified the original recipe by increasing the garlic and adding extra Romano cheese to garnish. I enjoy this pasta served with a roasted/grilled meat and mixed greens tossed in a balsamic vinaigrette. I hope you enjoy it as well.
This recipe is very easy to prepare and quite presentable if you are entertaining. It always gets rave reviews from our friends. Did I mention that it is delicious?
