A tasty pasta doesn't need to be covered in a creamy sauce or drenched in olive oil. In fact, you can make a practically fatless pasta dish that is absolutely delicious. I took a recipe and then took out all the meat, oil, and fat, replacing it with healthier and less calorific alternatives. What I ended up with was a fruity fig pasta that works out at about 336 calories per portion.
