  5. Toss with your choice of toppings.(I personally prefer olives in it.)

  7. Serve immediately, garnished with grated Parmesan cheese if desired.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Add lots of salt in the water while cooking pasta. This helps spaghetti absorb salt and tastes better.

  2. Make sure the pasta is al dante and not overly cooked.

  3. Remember to first taste and then season with salt, as the pasta water is overly salty.
