Aubrey shares not just his cooking talents but a little of his singing talents too while making this delightfully simple & delicious pasta recipe.
Take note that his love of wine was not just for Come Dine With Me but certainly an entrenched affair that has no doubt been going on for a very long time.
I do however disagree with Aubrey on one point regarding his recipe. By adding oil to the pasta while boiling you not only prevent it from sticking in the pot but you prevent the sauce from sticking properly to the pasta which is what you really want to happen. No need to waste oil in the pot, it’s an urban myth. Simply stir it a couple of times while cooking and it will be perfect.
You do want lots of salt however, so much that you can taste the salt in the water. That’s no myth, just the best way to prepare pasta.
