Tonight I washed my pasta off…
You may be thinking, “What’s the big deal? Washing pasta post boil is common.”
This was not the case.
I made spaghetti, drained it, then drenched it in a disgusting mayo/tuna/caper sauce (sounds disgusting, smelled awful, tasted even worse) which was practically unpalatable.
Currently in 2016 I have nearly zero wasted food so far!
Thus, since I try not to waste any food, dumping this entire pot of icky pasta was not going to happen, even though I debated tossing the entire batch. Since I was not going to eat this tuna casserole catastrophe, I figured I had nothing to lose if I washed off the sauce… so I dumped the whole meal back into the strainer and let the faucet do it’s thing:
To my surprise, this it worked brilliantly!
All the nasty sauce swirled down the drain, leaving the plain pasta, greens and a bit of tuna. I just zapped the spaghetti and what was left in the microwave, then topped with crumbled goat cheese and fresh herbs et viola: A delightful dish.
- Keep it simple
- Mayo is gross and cannot be substituted for alfredo or any pasta “sauce”
- If your sauce sucks and you combined it with the pasta- just wash it off and start over!
DON”T WASTE FOOD!!!!!
