When it comes to cooking pasta, you'd be hard pressed to find someone who has ever cooked the proper amount.
Most people either cook waaaaay too much, or they cook just 3 noodles for FEAR of cooking too much.
There's a lot of tips people try to give, like 1/4 of the package is for one person, just a handful of pasta is enough, etc.
But there's actually a REALLY easy way to know how much pasta to cook! And more likely than not, you have everything you need at home!
Take an empty coke bottle and fill it with dry spaghetti. However much fits in the opening is the perfect amount for one serving!
Add your favorite sauce and you're in for an amazing dinner!
