I swear to you, there's a little Italian woman that lives inside my stomach who has told me the many secrets to making great pasta. But after today, I'm going to have to have a talk with my inner Italian grandma for not knowing this trick.
According to many, you're not supposed to drain your pasta water! The water carries with it, important things...things that will make your scratch made pasta sauce (gravy) even better! And I'm doing this next week when I make my next pot of gravy.
Game changer...also, go figure I'm freaking hungry now.
