Perfectly Portioned Pasta

What a great gadget for the fitness enthusiast or anyone watching their weight.  Perfectly portioned pasta!  Our family enjoys Angel Hair Pasta a few times a week and this is such a great find.

With the Joseph Joseph Spaghetti Measure you'll never accidently eat more than you fill again.  Set the device's camera-like aperture for the number of 2-ounce portions you want (up to four) and place dry pasta in the opening to get a healthy helping every time, voila!

The average plate of noodles serves up more than 1,000 calories, as published in the American Journal of Public Health.  The recommended serving size - 1 cup cooked has 221 calories.  You can order it on Amazon or Joseph Joseph, their website.  This is my Kitchen Gadget of the month!

So glad that you visited my blog as it brought me to yours. Not many people know that I am a "Health Nut"... I can't wait to look around here a bit.

Great Idea, nice gadget. Currently I just create an O with my finger and thumb like an OK sign. Spaghetti which fits through the hole is generally enough for four. I then divide from there.
