Bowl Of Pasta With Sauce

When I make pasta I always pour the sauce over it and then stir it around to make sure all of the pasta is covered. When I eat pasta I like it completely covered in whatever sauce it has. I find that when I go out and the sauce is just on top of the pasta there often isn’t enough to cover all of the pasta. Granted, it’s quicker and easier to just put the sauce on top, and at times it might even look a bit fancier but I’d rather have enough sauce than a good looking dish. When you cook and serve pasta, do you just put it over the top or do you stir it around to cover all of the pasta? Let’s hear it!

I pour the pasta right into the pan where I’m cooking the sauce and mix it all right in there. I like to let the pasta soak up the sauce for a bit before digging in 🙂

I agree, restaurants barely dish out enough sauce to my liking. And like you, I like every bit of pasta to be covered in sauce.

For home I make it by the pot–stirring in everything.

We scoop it over our pasta making sure that we have all the pasta covered. We like a lot of sauce. We never mix the sauce and the pasta even when storing the leftovers.

We individually put sauce on. Maybe I spoil my family, but this lets me get a lot of miliage out of preparing one meal. Most like sauce but one prefers sprinkling shredded cheese on, another often spritzes the ravioli with Parkay spray and sprinkles with lemon pepper — depends on what else is part of the meal. The leftover pasta is usually stored in a baggie with no sauce

If it works for you then that’s all that matters. I’ve been known to cook a second meal if my son doesn’t like what I’m making, that’s spoiled. I don’t think serving one meal but allowing for different options is spoiled.
