    Option 1 all the way. But, then again, what does an asian person know about italian food?


    QUESTION: How do you keep the noodles from clumping together after you drain it in option 2? Add butter? Olive oil? Keep some pasta water? I thought all we had was box pasta and Prego? (Prego is nasty BTW. Too sweet.)

    I thought pasta sauce was a good lubricant?

    Option 2 has no sauce before hitting the table

    It is important to completely drain the pasta of water before adding sauce. If you don't, you'll have runny sauce in the pasta bowl.

    A slight touch of Olive Oil (not extra virgin) would be the preferred choice.

    You option1ers are really just a bunch of lipton noodles and sauceTM eating muthafuckas.

    Won't the olive oil keep the sauce from adhering to the pasta?

    Where'd the olive oil come from? I thought it was just box pasta and prego. If we gonna get all fancy and **** why are we using prego?

    Is option 1 the ghetto way and option 2 the gourmet way?

    Actually, there should be some olive oil in the sauce. But with Prego, who knows? And you can use extra virgin in the sauce. Just not on the noodles, and this is because you don't want to store your noodles with extra virgin olive oil on them.

    But alas, I am giving away too many secrets, I must now STFU, or brave the the potential consequences from la cosa nostra.

    there is no olive oil involved in option 1 or 2, just to keep things equal.

    and #2 is most certainly the ghetto way.

    Really, who doesn't have the manual dexterity to drain all the water from the pasta
