Another Fabulous Food Finds Friday is here, and today, I want to tell you about an amazingly yummy pasta that has only 5 Weight Watchers Points per 2oz serving (which is at least 1 Weight Watchers Point less than all other pasta).

It’s Ronzoni Smart Taste Pasta! Ronzoni Smart Taste is a new member of the New World Pasta family of brands.

What’s so special about it? Read on to learn more!

Weight Watchers Low Calorie, High Fiber Pasta

This is the first white pasta to be enriched with fiber and calcium-and lots of it. Three times the fiber and calcium equal to an eight-ounce glass of milk. Studies show that many diets are lacking in these two important nutrients.

Plus, Smart Taste is lower in calories and fat than traditional pasta. That means Smart Taste has the same great taste of pasta that you and your family love but with greater nutritional value.

This low calorie pasta is super high in fiber – it packs in 6 grams per serving!! But here’s the best part — it tastes EXACTLY like regular pasta!! And with just 5 Weight Watchers Points per 2 oz serving, it’s definitely lower in Points than regular white pasta, so if eating the whole wheat pasta isn’t really your thing, Smart Taste will knock your socks off.

So rather than eating the empty calorie white pasta, give this one a try. The noodles come in many traditional pasta shapes, so you can incorporate it a lot of Weight Watchers Recipes!

Serving size is 2oz (dry)
Each serving = 5 Points

PER SERVING: 170 calories; 0.5 g fat; 40 g carbohydrates; 6 g protein; 5 g fiber


  1. I’m confused as well – these are the same points value as regular pasta…

    • Would still buy it for the nutritional value though. Points aren’t everything!

  2. I’m confused because all of the whole wheat pasta (and actually a garden rotini I have in the pantry as well) also come out to 5 PP for 2 oz…

  3. So im making this pasta tomorrow and was wondering if I measure cooked or dry? Is it 3 points dry, or do I have to measure when its cooked?

    • The measurement is for the dry pasta. So, you'll want to measure it out before you cook it. Enjoy! It's really yummy!

  4. What grocery chain sells the Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta?

    • It really varies. The major ones should carry it. If your local store doesn't have it, I would suggest asking to talking to the store manager and asking if they can order some.

  5. I LOVE Ronzoni. I read that 2 oz of dry pasta equals about 1 cup cooked. That's a lot!

    • I know! That's exactly why I LOVE Ronzoni Smart Taste Pasta!! And it tastes just like regular pasta! This is a killer food find for any Weight Watcher who is looking for a great low calorie pasta to incorporate into their collection of Weight Watchers Recipes.
