Never Boil Mac And Cheese Pasta in Water

As the cold, dark nights draw in, there’s nothing quite more soul-warming than a huge comforting bowl of mac and cheese.

Instead of cooking your pasta in water, cook it in milk instead.

The water-to-milk swap creates a more efficient cooking process (less washing up? We’re into it) – with an even richer sauce. 

The starch from the pasta works to thicken the milk, so it already has a saucy consistency from the start.

When you cook pasta in water, the water (and all the starch from the pasta that’s released as it cooks) is poured down the drain. 

By cooking the pasta in milk instead, you get to keep all that starchy goodness for your cheese sauce.

Some milk is absorbed into the pasta as it cooks, but you need to reserve enough to make your sauce.
