Woman’s Pasta-Straining Hack On Twitter Just Shocked Everyone


All your life you thought that cooking pasta is the easiest thing to do. And, of course, you go on proudly saying that you know how to cook from spaghetti, macaroni, and everything else. There are no words about straining them either. But what if you wake up one day and realize you’ve been doing something wrong your whole life? Well, one day, this woman tweeted something that shocked every sane person that saw the post. You’ve been straining your pasta wrong and I’m also crying, so don’t worry. There is good news coming, too!

Many of us can agree that pasta is great food and never gets boring. You can choose the type you like and make so many sauces! It’s even delicious on top of that. Even the pickiest eaters have said they love it. Pasta is also great because it’s so easy to make. All it takes is some boiling water, and dinner is ready in no time.
