Spaghetti being cooked in a pot of boiling water and Bolognese Sauce
You'll Never Boil Pasta In Water Again After Trying This Simple Swap
Food - Drink
It's actually pretty easy to make mistakes while cooking pasta. You have to be careful not to overcook or undercook your meal, and common "tips" like adding olive oil to the water or breaking spaghetti before adding it to the pot can cause problems with the finished product.
Because of this, most people assume you have to boil pasta in water, but they’re wrong. If you want to try something new, you can cook pasta in its own sauce or experiment with boiling pasta in wine.
You can even cook pasta in stock and amp up the simplest pasta dish, which is a tried-and-true Italian way to improve the flavor. Originating in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy, this simple trick will help season the noodles and deepen the flavor just by using your desired broth or stock instead of water.
