What do you guys think about Pasta?

Macaroni is a good source of carbs because it's made with semolina and not with flour.
Pasta is not so good but you can buy whole wheat pasta which is better.

Please explain the difference between "macaroni" and "pasta".

If you're speaking of linguini versus elbows, arent they made of the same crap?

Eitehr way, I get the hint that whatever I buy should be made of semolina instead of flour.

Macaroni is made with semolina.
Pasta is made with flour.

Linguini and elbows are macaroni.

So it is true then.. semolina pasta (macaroni) is relatively low GI?
