Drain your pasta about 2 minutes before
the recommended cooking time. Save
about 1 cup of the cooking water. Transfer
the pasta to the saucepan or skillet with the
sauce and allow it to cook for 2 minutes.
This lets the pasta absorb flavor from the
sauce and helps the sauce to cling to the
pasta. Use this method with any
simmered sauce (not pesto or carbonara).
If the sauce seems to thick, thin it with
some of the reserved pasta cooking water.
