Let’s get something straight: pasta is the best food.

It’s versatile and delicious, and you can eat it every day without getting bored.

Whether you like your pasta with just some simple oil and cheese or a complicated Italian sauce, the dish has something to offer everyone. Even the pickiest eaters like a bowl of plain penne!

Pasta is also great because it’s so easy to make. All it takes is some boiling water, and dinner basically makes itself.

OK, so here’s the thing: we all know how to strain pasta, right?

All you have to do is dump the pot of boiling water into a strainer, and your dish is ready to go.

But what if I told you that you’ve been straining pasta the wrong way for your entire life? A recent post on Twitter revealed a pasta-straining technique that is blowing everyone’s minds.

If the words “spaghetti,” “fettuccine,” and “tagliatelle” make your mouth water, you probably love pasta.

And everyone who loves pasta knows just how easy it is to make.

It’s truly one of the simplest dishes: All you have to do is boil some salted water, dump in the pasta, and then let it simmer until it’s just the right texture.

It’s often one of the first meals kids learn to make when they first start cooking!

Once your pasta is cooked, most people drain the water by pouring the noodle into a strainer in the sink.

But, as it turns out, this might not be the best way to strain your pasta, and we may have all been doing it wrong for years.
