It could be time to stop carb-shaming yourself for eating pasta, according to a new study, which pretty unsurprisingly comes out of Italy.

Researchers point to the well-documented benefits of Mediterranean diets, which in Italy traditionally include pasta. So why not let pasta get some of the praise?
