Caloric Intake Question

Hi, I've been logging my caloric intake with my fitbit app. I generally take in 3k calories a day while burning between 4k and 5k. I'm trying to bulk up and wondering if I need to take in more calories than I burn. This seems like the right idea but it's going to be a task to eat that much.

Whole wheat pasta protein

Hey! My main carb source is whole wheat pasta which contains 14g of protein per 100g. Today i got about 42g of protein from pasta. Is pasta a good protein source? I eat about 155-160g of protein a day so 42g of that is pasta. Is that okay? I've heard pasta is not a complete protein source. Thanks!
