Spaghetti is a versatile food that goes with a variety of different sauces and toppings. Prepare spaghetti simply by tossing it with garlic and olive oil, or create a more elaborate dish with tomato sauce, parmesan cheese and fresh garden vegetables. Add lean meat and serve spaghetti with a side salad for a complete meal, or serve it as a side dish at a family gathering. Use whole-grain spaghetti to get the most nutrients and fiber.

Energy

Spaghetti is a type of pasta made from flour and water and formed into solid strings. Flour is a source of carbohydrates, the preferred fuel supply your metabolism uses for energy.

Nutrients

Spaghetti is a dietary source of vitamins, minerals and fiber -- especially if you purchase whole grain or whole-wheat pasta. One 1/2 cup serving of whole-wheat pasta has 90 calories but contains 2 grams of fiber as well as calcium and iron. Whole grains also contain higher levels of nutrients selenium, potassium and magnesium.

Fiber

Spaghetti -- especially whole-grain spaghetti -- is a source of fiber. Fiber plays several important roles in health including blood sugar regulation, digestion and immunity. Fiber slows the uptake of sugars, helping you keep balanced blood-sugar levels. Dietary fiber also absorbs water and adds bulk to your stools, promoting regularity. High fiber intake supports beneficial bacteria in your digestive tract that help your immune system fight infections. Fiber also makes you feel full from meals, allowing you to eat less and maintain a healthy weight.
