If you’ve made made spaghetti recently you most likely used that plastic spoon for the pasta with the one circular hole in the middle. I always thought that hole was just to drain the water when you lift the noodles from the pot. Come to find out there’s a much more handy reason for it.
The correct amount of speghetti for a single serving fits in that hole. So before you put the noodles in the water you can measure them out using the spoon. So cool! Totally doing this next time.
