The goal of the study is to investigate the impact of the incorporation of by-product (tomato peels) on durum wheat whole-meal spaghetti. To the aim, different amounts of tomato peels flour were added to pasta dough until the overall sensory quality reached its threshold (peels flour at 15% TP). Moreover, the effect of different particle sizes of tomato peels addition on sensory quality of pasta was also evaluated. The increase of particle sizes determined a decline of pasta sensory quality. So, samples enriched with fine particles showed high sensory quality, a more acceptable cooking quality and the lowest value of starch digestibility. The utilization of fine particles of tomato peels seems to be useful to enhance the spaghetti quality. Therefore, fine particles allowed obtained fortified pasta with acceptable sensory properties.
