The Pasta Sauce Faux-Pas You Will Never See In Italy
Pasta sauce, or more specifically, the application method, is no exception from the extended list of faux pas you never want to get caught doing in Italy. In fact, in authentic Italian cuisine, the sauce and the pasta always meet way before gracing the dinner table.
To be specific, the sauce and pasta should be heated in a saute pan, cooking for at least a minute. This allows some of the starchiness from the pasta to mix in, while also allowing the pasta to absorb the sauce, creating an overall more luscious, cohesive dish.
While it may seem easier at first to serve pasta and the sauce separately, it almost always does the overall dish a disservice. Resist the urge, and cook them together to marry the unique flavors together and create a memorable meal.
