Pretty good replacement...think it has more fiber. You just don't get the insulin release that rice will stimulate.

fwiw, whole wheat pasta actually has a higher GI than semolina/duram wheat pasta....

is fiber good in you diet if so why and for breakfest would a cereal with 14 grams of fiber be good for you and does carbs from fiber count in your carb count

You may find that the pasta is higher Glycemic than the rice (if your taling about brown rice).

In moderation it's fine.
