If you have Wilson’s disease, you should eat pasta made of white flour for the same reason you consume baked goods that are not whole wheat. Be careful of colored pasta, because it may contain some wheat. Pasta is an alternative to other side dishes that may contain copper. If you ordinarily would eat lentils or beans, have some pasta instead. Do not eat pasta dishes that contain beans.
You can enjoy pasta with cheese and tomato sauce, but avoid pesto that contains pine nuts that may contain copper. Pasta is remarkably versatile and can be eaten several times a week in the form of spaghetti, linguine, and lasagna. Put it in soups instead of beans. Make sure you don’t serve pasta with foods that may contain copper, such as organ meats and shellfish. Most fresh fruits and vegetables are free of copper and go well with pasta.
