Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 1 (1-pound) package of angel hair spaghetti

Instructions
 

  • In a large pot over medium-high heat, cook pasta according to package instructions. Before you strain the pasta, reserve one cup of the pasta water and stir in the bouillon cube. Set it aside.

Notes

  • Save the starchy pasta water: The water you don’t use immediately for this sauce can be stored in the fridge (for 2 days) or the freezer to use in other sauces and stocks. If unsalted, you can also use it to water plants.
  • Don’t overcook the pasta: I usually cook it for a minute less than the package instructions or until the center of the pasta has just a speck of white for perfectly al dente results.
  • For a creamy sauce: You could blend some of the white beans with the seasoned pasta water to create a quick, creamy white bean pasta sauce.
