COOKBOOK: Women’s Weekly - How to Cook Absolutely Everything
Too easy to make! I think this is one of those basic recipes that all new cooks start with.
Don't forget, pasta tastes better after it has absorbed all its juices.
If you let it stand for 20mins, it will have more flavour than if you serve it directly from the cooktop…..and it will taste even better the day after!
