Then stir the pasta as it cooks, stirring every 2-3 minutes.
Use good quality parmesan that you grate yourself.

TO STORE THE CREAMY PASTA LEFTOVERS
Have you ever made a dish, taken a few bites, and then wondered how to store the leftovers? It’s a common dilemma in the kitchen, especially regarding creamy pasta. But don’t worry, we’re here to help!
Here are a few tips on how to store your creamy pasta leftovers, so they stay fresh and delicious:
First, make sure to cool the pasta down completely before storing it. You can do this by spreading it out on a plate or in a container. Then, cover the pasta and place it in the fridge.
When it comes to reheating, we recommend reheating the pasta in a pan on the stove. Add a little bit of water or pasta sauce to the pan and heat over medium heat until the pasta is warmed through. This will help to preserve the creamy texture of the pasta.
If you’re looking to store the pasta for longer, you can freeze it. Just make sure to place the pasta in a freezer-safe container, which will be good for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to eat it, simply thaw the pasta in the fridge overnight and reheat it on the stove.
So, there you have it! Just remember to cool the pasta down before storing it and reheat it on the stove for the best results.
