Tips:

  • Cook the pasta in a large pot or pan since pasta expands as it is exposed to heat. If the vessel is too small, it will stick to the vessel and become mushy
  • Some recipes urge you to drizzle some oil to the boiling pasta. But in my experience it is the worst idea for a perfect pasta since the pasta and the sauce will remain separate once mixed together.
  • Stirring continuously while preparing the sauce  or else you would end with lumps. Use a spatula to break down any lumps formed while adding milk.

Alternative ingredients:

  • You can swap butter with olive oil if you prefer.
  • You can use any kind of pasta in this recipe.
