Spinach pasta is a popular addition to many Italian-style dishes. Spinach pasta is low in calories and relatively low in carbohydrates, making it a good alternative to traditional wheat pastas.

Calories

The standard serving size for spinach pasta is 2 oz., according to the United States Department of Agriculture. Each serving of spinach pasta has 74 calories.

Calories from Fat

One gram of fat has nine calories. Spinach pasta has very little fat. In each 2-oz. serving, it has .5 g of fat, so less than five of its calories are from fat.
