NEWS flash spaghetti lovers – this is how you should really be straining your pasta.
The family favourite dish is cooked by thousands of Brits every week, but have you ever heard of this handy tip?
To remove the water, most of us tip our pasta into a sieve.
We then re-add it into the pan, before mixing in sauce and the other ingredients of our choice.
But apparently, this is a complete waste of time.
To cut corners, you can attach a strainer to the pan, before tipping the water straight down the sink.
The cooking hack emerged on social media earlier this week and racked up more than 57,000 likes.
Many admitted their minds had been blown by the kitchen revelation.
One Twitter user said: “THATS HOW YOURE SUPPOSE TO DO IT?
“My dumba** has been pouring it into the strainer just to pour it back into the pan after. Wooooooooow.”
Despite this, not everyone was convinced the trick would work.
A concerned cook said: “He’s one handing it? How does the spaghetti not just slip through to the other side?”
Another agreed: “This is not how you do it, this is not how the professional chefs of Food network do it, no.”
This isn’t the only spaghetti tip to spark the interest of foodies in recent months.
And Italian chefs revealed whether or not it makes a difference if you add pasta to cold or boiling water.
