Recommendation: A flat whisk is perfect for whisking up sauces. It allows you to stir up every part of the pan/pot with minimal effort.

Serving Suggestion:

  • Add your favorite cooked protein when combining pasta with the sauce.

Tips:

  • If you forget to reserve pasta water, it is ok to use milk instead.
  • Add parmesan a little at a time while stirring so it melts thoroughly. Temperature is important to avoid lumps.
  • Add salt after parmesan in mixed in. Parmesan has a decent amount of salt already and you may not need to add much.
