Do you rinse your pasta after boiling it, some people swear that thats what you have to do while others say don’t as the sauce sticks better to the pasta! What do you do? Do you make your own pasta? and if you do, can you share any recipes. Making your own is something many of us would love to try but are a bit concerned in case it does not work out.
Making your sauce its always a great idea to make a large batch at a time and freeze in portions, its not only cheaper to do it that way but very useful to have something in the freezer like a good pasta sauce when you are running late or are a bit too busy.
There are some great ways of using up leftover pasta, its great to add to salads, to serve as a snack lunch with a topping on it. Its great to throw left over pasta into soups after you have blended it or you can just freeze it to use another day. What do you do with your left over Pasta?
