Pasta, both white and whole wheat, is a complex carbohydrate. White pasta has a higher starch content. Starch has the same structure as glycogen except for one molecular bond which makes it stack differently. Animals use glycogen as an energy storage molecule, plants use starch. Both starch and glycogen are classed as complex carbohydrates.
Both will spike your insulin levels, but whole wheat pasta less so because the fiber replaces some of the starch content and the fiber itself acts as a buffer with regards to the insulin response.
