You can use bottled tomato sauce for this. I look for tomato sauce with 2 grams of fat per serving or less. Look carefully at the Nutrition Facts on the label because some jars list the serving size as 1/4 cup.
Fiber is not one particular food but the part of plant foods that your body can't digest: what your grandma called roughage. She might have thought of getting more roughage as eating more greens and beans but there's so many other great sources of fiber.
Technically fiber is a carbohydrate, but it is not absorbed into the body like other carbs because humans don't have the enzymes to break them down. As a result, foods that are high in fiber are generally lower in calories.
Most people need to increase the amount of dietary fiber in their diet. The average American only eats foods with 10 - 15 grams of fiber per day, but 25 - 30 grams is optimum. More »

|2 ounces||(per serving) whole wheat or gluten-free penne or other pasta|
|1/2 cup||(per serving) tomato sauce|
|1/2 ounce||Parmigiano-Reggiano (grated)|
Place the water in a medium to large stockpot over high heat (depending on the amount of pasta to be cooked). When the water is boiling add the pasta.
While the pasta is cooking place the tomato sauce in a medium (or larger) sauce pan and heat gently over medium heat. When the sauce is hot reduce the heat to low.
When the pasta is done remove the noodles using tongs, allowing them to drain. Place the noodles in the sauce and toss well.
Serve hot in a large bowl topped with the grated cheese.
