Recipe News: Recipes for Sloppy Joes and spaghetti boost whole grains simply

Eat more whole grains! We hear it everywhere these days. We've made the switch to whole-grain bread, but we're still having a problem switching to whole-grain pasta. Some we've tried tasted like we might as well be eating the box.

Manufacturers heard consumer complaints and are developing tastier whole-grain products, so check them out. Here are some tips to make the conversion easier to swallow.

•Begin by substituting one-quarter of whole-grain pasta mixed in with regular pasta. Work your way up to a higher percentage every time you serve pasta. Soon, your family will be accustomed to the new look, feel and taste.

•Look for products that are high in fiber. Some brands boast as much as three times more fiber than their regular-pasta counterparts.

•Look for fresh, refrigerated whole-grain pasta. Its texture tends to be softer than dried pasta. Follow the package directions carefully to avoid over- or undercooking.

•If your regular supermarket doesn't sell whole-grain pasta, ask the grocery manager to order it. National brands such as Hodgson Mill and Creamette have lines that include whole-grain pasta and pasta with whole-grain blends.

  • SIMPLE ITALIAN SAUSAGE SPAGHETTI DINNER

Recipe News: Let it snow: We've got cheesecake

The plan was to take pumpkin cheesecake to the Goble family Christmas celebration earlier this month.

I'd tasted a sample of this delicacy around Thanksgiving, and quickly discovered that pumpkin and cheesecake make a mighty fine combination.

I'd started looking around for a recipe when lo and behold, an online reader from Ayer, Mass., e-mailed one to The Clueless Cook.

"My mom (Justine Chappell) and sister (Ellen Hiser) live in Lexington, and I often read the Mansfield News Journal online to see what's happening out in their area," Susan Chappell wrote in an e-mail. "We all love to cook and enjoy sharing recipes. I enjoyed your article and wanted to share my favorite cheesecake recipe -- it's easy and it is a great holiday recipe! I hope you get a chance to try it."

Recipe News: A Diabetes-Friendly Meal Everyone Can Enjoy

Knowing what to serve and eat for dinner can sometimes be a challenge-especially for people with diabetes. While eating healthy foods is important for everyone, it's essential for people with diabetes. Diabetes is a disease that results in high glucose, or sugar levels in the blood, which can lead to serious complications. For the 21 million people with diabetes in this country, making healthy food choices and being physically active is crucial to managing their diabetes.

Whether you are a person with diabetes or a family member or friend, you can prepare a meal that is healthy and tastes great. Look for recipes that are low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt (sodium), and added sugars. Experiment with recipes that include fruits and vegetables, fish, lean meats, chicken or turkey without the skin, dry peas or beans, and low-fat or nonfat milk and cheese. Other healthy ingredients are foods high in fiber, such as whole grain cereals, breads, crackers, rice, and pasta. To give an example of what to serve as a healthy meal, the National Diabetes Education Program suggests a recipe, along with other foods to complete the meal, that everyone can enjoy-whether you have diabetes or not.

  • Baked Salmon Dijon
