Want to really impress the next time you serve your guests pasta? Don’t rinse the noodles after boiling them. Pour them into a strainer and let the pasta water drain – just don’t turn on that faucet! Doing so will rinse the starches off the pasta and make the noodles more slippery when combined with the sauce. The starchiness of unrinsed pasta causes the sauces to be a bit thicker and adhere to the noodles better – the result is perfect pasta, evertime!
