>>I know you recommend whole wheat pasta. I've had difficulty
achieving good results with it.

What do you mean by having difficulty acheiving good results?

>>As a compromise, particularly for non-vegan guests,

The difference between WW Pasta & refined pasta is not a "vegan"
issue, its a health issue. Besides, even if it was a "vegan" issue,
your option wouldnt work as it has egg in it.

>>what do you think of "Barilla Plus Spaghetti?" Better than regular
pasta, but not as good as whole wheat?

Considering how widely available WW pasta is, I dont see why I
would purposely choose to compromise in this area. We should be
keeping all and any compromises to a minimum. And, there are
many areas and times where one may have to compromise, so I
never think it is a good idea to compromise in an area where one
doesnt have to or has some many options.

The product you posted is mostly refined flour, and low in fiber

Personally, when guests come to my house, I never preach or
prostelytize about food or health, but I dont compromise either.
There are so many wonderful and tasty dishes that can be made
without compromise, I just dont see why I should.
