I used to wonder how restaurants got their pasta dishes so hot. It seemed that the act of draining the pasta and pouring the hot sauce over it didn’t yield me a dish as piping hot as those I got when dining out.
The secret? Instead of putting the sauce on the pasta, put the pasta into the sauce!
Cook the pasta according to directions, removing it about a minute earlier than the stated cook time. Add the drained pasta to a warm pan, add the sauce, and swirl it together until the pasta is fully coated, and heated through. If the mixture seems a bit thick, add a little of the pasta cooking water to the pan to make the sauce smoother. Pour the entire contents of the pan into your bowl and enjoy it while its hot!
