Don’t Rinse Your Pasta: How to Cook Pasta

Kitchen Collection 5 Quart Enamel Colander RedWhen you’re cooking pasta, don’t rinse it afterward when you drain the water off.

If you do, you rinse of the starch that will hold your sauce on the noodle.

Plus, you’ll cool down the pasta to a much lower temperature, even if you rinse it in warm water.

So, just drain your pasta in a colander or strainer, pour it back into your pan or pot and drizzle olive oil or melt some butter into it until you finish adding your sauce.
