One of the most famous Italian dishes is definitely spaghetti, and the most widely used way to cook spaghetti is to take a deep pot, fill it with cold water, and wait for it to boil and add the spaghetti.
Although it sounds familiar, it seems like we’ve been doing it wrong our whole lives. Instead of preparing the spaghetti the usual way, there is this one method that makes the preparing process quicker and it also provides a liquid that can be used for sauces.
The first thing that you need to do is to use frying pan, instead of deep pot. It sounds strange but it can be effective. Then take the spaghetti noodles and add them in the pan. Then, pour cold water over the noodles. You need to pour quart and a half of cold water, no more than that.
The cold water will prevent the spaghetti from sticking to one another, and you add lesser amount of water than you usually do, because this time you are using a frying pan instead of a deep pot.
The pasta will cook efficiently, and you can later use the water for other cooking or sauces. This is much simpler method of cooking, it saves time and energy.
