Want more flavorful pasta? Cook it in the same water you used to par-boil (precook) your sausages. Some of the richness of the sausage will seep into your noodles, for an extra flavor kick!
Not making sausage?Throw a slightly-crushed clove of garlic and a few sprigs of thyme in the pot as you bring it to a boil. Just remember to fish them out before tossing in your spaghetti!
