Basic Pasta Cooking Guidelines
Getting your sauce and pasta to blend together well can be done if you cook the sauce in a large, broad skillet. Once the pasta is ready, you can then dump it into the skillet in which the sauce is being prepared.
A fun cooking technique you can try is called "pasta strascicata," which is done in some restaurants. It works well with sauce that is mostly liquid. You warm the sauce in a skillet while the pasta is cooking. Just before the pasta is done, transfer it, while it is still dripping, into the skillet. Turn the heat up high and then toss the pasta like you would if you were making an omelet. This technique helps the pasta to absorb the sauce, imparting a more complex flavor.
