Even if you’re trying to lose weight, you can still indulge in delicious carby-carby bowls of carb-laden pasta without sabotaging your diet — so long as you reheat it first.

According to the Independent, the act of cooking, then cooling, then reheating pasta makes it a healthier option. It transforms pasta into a “resistant starch” instead of a sugar, so rather than heighten the body’s blood-glucose level, reheated pasta could actually reduce it.

A word of caution before you house an entire reheated lasagna: This discovery was introduced on a BBC show called Trust Me, I’m a Doctor, and we all know where that line of reasoning usually ends up.
