Pasta is delicious but it is not always the healthiest option on any given menu. So, I wanted to see if there was a way to change that. Can we make our pasta healthier by doing the LEAST amount possible? Call this a hack, but I think I've found the SECRET to healthier pasta. What is it? You'll have to watch to find out!

  • To make you feel a little bit better, Olive Garden basically does this. They boil all the pasta and bag it up put it in the fridge and then reheat it for individual portions to serve.

  • If the waiter sells olive garden stock when matpat comes and presumably buys it afterwards, is he committing a form of insider trading? 🤔

  • Hah and here my parents told me i shouldnt be so lazy and eat my meals fresh instead of always reheating it in the microwave after im done with yet another marathon of eigther too much gaming or watching shows! EAT THAT! No srsly im already in my mid 20s i prolly should stop drinking coke and reheat everything BUT its at least a little less unhealthy then i thought it was.

  • Still not as good as the healest pasta! Japanese Yam pasta will magically fill you up while having 0 cal, 0 carbs, 0 nutrients, and all the feelings of emptiness! Basically it's good for putting sauce on and noting else.

  • Why not just eat cauliflower pasta? It’s super good, and slightly better than normal pasta. There’s whole grain pasta, red legume pasta, and of course, cauliflower pasta. I dunno, I like all of em. Red legume pasta is solid for red or savory, more meaty sauces, whole grain pasta is great for spaghetti, and cauliflower pasta compliments cheese sauces best, like Alfredo or mornay.

  • hello, matpat and theory crew, i don't know if this would work but. people believe chocolate does so many things, but when i have dark chocolate (specifically) it makes me really emotionally unstable, either laughing so hard i cry, crying for no reason, getting very sensitive or having panic attacks, or being too giddy. sometimes this happens even when im not eating dark chocolate. is there a reason? and what does dark-- or milk-- chocolate ACTUALLY do to your mood?

B, she can talk to water and make it understand and obey her, which noone else on the island can do. And c, I want to know if this might be something we see in Moana 2. Thx
