Pasta rEEEdo

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.

Lessons

  1. Keep it simple
  2. Mayo is gross and cannot be substituted for alfredo or any pasta “sauce”
  3. If your sauce sucks and you combined it with the pasta- just wash it off and start over!

DON”T WASTE FOOD!!!!!
