Step 1: Heat sauce Heat the sauce in a saucepan over medium-low heat while the pasta is cooking. Step 2: Remove pasta from water Remove the pasta from the hot water with a skimmer -- a flat, slotted utensil -- once it has finished cooking. Reserve the water for later. Step 3: Add pasta to sauce Add the pasta to the sauce and mix. Heat the pasta and sauce together for one minute. Tip Don't "oversauce" your pasta -- use just enough to coat the noodles evenly. Step 4: Add starchy water Add half a ladle of the starchy water to the saucepan and mix. Starch water gives your sauce a good consistency and keeps your pasta moist. Step 5: Add fat Turn off the heat and add a small scoop of butter and a dash of olive oil and mix. Step 6: Add cheese Grate a handful of parmesan cheese and mix it through the pasta. Step 7: Add herbs Mix in basil or parsley just before serving. Ring the dinner bell quickly so everyone can enjoy your creation while it's hot. Did You Know? The Chinese cooked with pasta as early as 5,000 B.C.
