    I actually prefer the tast of whole wheat pasta (it's slightly nuttier), and my husband is getting used to it - or, at least has stopped complaining!

    You might have to cook it a little longer, but otherwise it works just as well.

    I usually use whole wheat pasta. IMO, regular pasta does taste better, but the whole wheat stuff is good enough - not so bad that I quit buying it. My family eats it w/o complaints.

    I have always used whole wheat pasta and nobody has ever said anything negitive. I think if you don't make a big deal out of it, most people won't even notice.
