Never seem to get a simple spaghetti with a sauce that clings to it? Does your cooked pasta seem like drowning in a bowl of a red sauce that looks more like a soup? This is the secret I learned from my husbands Italian colleague Marino from Genoa, and I gladly share it with you
The key word here is…….POTATO. Add a peeled potato at the boiling water. Boil the potato for 10-15 minutes, until the potato’s starch is fully released. Remove the potato and boil your pasta in the same pot. The potato’s starch acts like a thickening agent, and helps pasta and sauce BECOME ONE. The perfect incorporation!
