Pasta, it is high in protein and will help put on weight.

Pasta will give you energy but not put any muscle on

I was 5'9", 145lbs in my h.s freshman year. I went out for FB and made the team. Then came the weight room. Fast forward to my senior year. 5'10", 215 lbs, rock solid muscle!
I continued to work out until I joined the ARMY. I opted for the Infantry. 5'10" 225 lbs, more rock solid. Then I met my DI's!
"Boy, we catch you touching any kind of fitness equipment we are going to run you until your grandkids feel it!" In 11 weeks I went from 225 lbs to 180 lbs of lean,mean, fighting machine!
If you want muscle and mass lift HEAVY and A LOT! Do so many reps with as much weight as humanly possible, then add more weight and reps! That's how I did it. I was not on any special diet, besides the McDonalds diet.
I'm now 48, 5'9" (how did I get shorter?) 245 lbs, and still in alright shape. Oh, and disabled.

A lot of good advise here. Protein shakes are great but remember that they are supplements and not substitutes. Keep packing in high protein, high carb (good complex carbs, not sugars) meals and do it often. It is much better to get the same number of calories in with 5 or 6 meals than it is with 3. I would concentrate on the basics in the gym. Keep it simple, push it hard and always keep good form. 4 exercises, 4 sets per large muscle group and 3 exercises, 3 sets per small muscle group ( biceps, shoulders). Keep reps in the 8 to 12 range. Make sure not to overtrain, your muscles grow during the recuperation period not during the tear down period. For protein shakes, as mentioned before, try something that has more than just protein in it. Cytogainer by cytosport is a good one. It has 50 some odd grams of protein and 70 some odd grams of carbs per serving as well as a bunch of aminos and creatine. DPS nutrition always has great prices. As mentioned the casein protein is great at bed time as it is one the slowest absorbing proteins and will feed your body throughout the night.
Hope this helps some.

Right now my workout is 3 sets of 10 for chest, back and legs with running a mile before. I do 3 sets of 12 for my smaller groups with lighter weight for my shoulders since I separated the tendons connecting my collarbone to my rotator cuff. And I just actually got home from the gym and swung by CVS to get a pre made protein shake for post workout. I went ahead and weighed as well and am at 142

Don't forget the legs....the largest of the muscles. work the legs and you will grow. Squats, front lunges, clean and jerks build power too. good luck.
