    Go for quality

    Be sure to use quality sauce like Del Monte Spaghetti Sauce and pasta like Del Monte Pasta, and you're off to a good start.

    Add salt to the water
    Salt enhances the flavors of the pasta so you won't have a bland-tasting dish. Remember to boil water with the salt before you cook the pasta. But be mindful of the amount of salt you add. Remember: everything in moderation!

    It's in the pan
    Just as your sauce is almost done, and while the pasta is still hot, transfer both into the saucepan with a little of the starch water that you used to boil the pasta. The starch in the water will bind sauce to pasta in a beautiful combination.

    Try some of the dishes on! Now, you're ready to be crowned Pasta Queen!
