You've been making pasta the way the box tells you. It's not wrong, but it's just not right. This method takes a minute longer and is so very worth it. With just a few more ingredients you've got pasta you'll actually look forward to!
- 1 Tbs butter
- 1 Tbs olive oil
- fresh parmesan
- fresh basil
- 1 box of pasta
- 1 jar of marinara sauce
- Cook pasta as directed, DO NOT pour cooked pasta into a colander! Scoop cooked pasta out of hot water and put in a pan with the pasta sauce. Save the pasta water. Add butter, olive oil and some parmesan to the pasta and sauce. Add some of the pasta water to the pan. Chop some fresh basil and mix in with pasta. Serve.
