  • When preparing the spaghetti, always make sure to move it around until the water begins to boil to avoid sticking.
  • Do not cook the spaghetti beyond al dente as it will continue to cooked a little when added to the sauce.
  • Reserve some of the sauce before mixing it all together so you can add it back on top when serving to the platter. This will just make the dish look more luscious.
