You've been cooking your pasta all wrong – here's why you should never boil it beforehand | The Sun

A FOODIE has taken to TikTok to reveal that we’ve all been cooking pasta wrong. 

Sarah shared a quick and easy chicken fajita pasta bake recipe online, but her followers were more distracted by her revelation that there’s no need to boil your fusilli first. 

She said: “Stop cooking your pasta and cook it right in the sauce, all in one pan.

“Less washing up. It’s so good, so delicious and so quick, you need to try it. 

“This is my chicken fajita pasta version. It’s a combo of some of our favourite dishes, all together cooked in one pan.” 

Sarah, known online as @tamingtwins, regularly shares easy family recipes that take less than 30 minutes with her 300,000 followers.

On her blog, she explained how she puts together her Tex-Mex pasta bake – and how she cooks the pasta in the sauce. 

She starts by browning off her chicken, before adding in onions, peppers and her spices. 

The foodie then adds in her uncooked pasta, before pouring in chicken stock and chopped tomatoes. 

She places on a lid and leaves the mixture to simmer until the pasta is cooked al-dente, and the sauce has thickened.

In the comments, her followers shared their reactions, with one writing: “The best way to cook pasta, my mum has been doing it for years and the pasta has so much flavour.”

Another said: “Looks amazing!”

A third wrote: “It looks amazing but I'm a creature of habit and tradition so I have to keep boiling it first whether I want to or not.”

Although not all agreed with her idea to throw the dry pasta in to cook in the sauce, with someone else commenting: “This is wrong.”

Another added: “Respectfully, no.”
