Pasta is a source of carbohydrates, so to the extent that the body needs carbohydrates, absolutely! And most pasta is pretty much low or no fat. The sauce eaten with the pasta is often very calorie and fat rich with meats, oils, cheeses and butter. A good marinara sauce and pasta can be a pretty low fat meal. And buying pasta with a higher fiber and grain content and marinara without sugars and corn syrups will help. And don't over eat!
