Pinch of Wisdom – Secret Sauce

“After boiling 1 pound of pasta in a pot of water, reserve 1 cup of the pasta cooking water. It’s filled with starchy, salty goodness that adds a silky richness to any sauce—especially any white sauce, like the base of Cacio e Pepe. Just put your water in the pan before you add your sauce ingredients, mix, add the pasta and toss to combine.”
