Try adding a few teaspoons of powdered chicken bouilion and olive oil to the water you cook your spaghetti in. It really perks it up! If you like using cheater sauce (jar sauce) like I do, it can also be improved on by adding a little oregano, powdered garlic, and lemon pepper.
Great ideas! I especially like the idea about putting the leftover spaghetti into the jar it came out of! Gee, now why didn't I think of that!
I agree. I also love the idea of putting back into the jar it came out of. clever idea
Great minds think alike. I do almost the same things you do but now I'm wondering...
are you sure we're simply not lazy?
I do your sauce in a jar thing and I add cooked hamburger meat. I lightly fry the burger in light Olive Oil and add spices and then I dump the burger and oil into the pot of boiling sauce.
One other thing is to heat your pasta bowl with hot water & empty it just before before adding your sauce or spaghetti before serving. If not, it'll be cold upon serving.
Putting your leftover spaghetti and sauce into the jar it came out of is very clever. I did this recently and I even reheated the contents right in the jar in the microwave...without the lid, of course! Then all I had to do was pour out onto my plate. It made a great next day lunch and I even had some leftover garlic bread that I ran through the toaster.
