On pasta night, Fine Cooking reader Lillian from Gainesville, FL, uses a simple, common-sense trick that helps solve two problems at once.

Since noodles tend to suck up the moisture in a sauce, drain the pasta over a heat-proof serving bowl in the sink. This reserves some of that hot, starchy pasta water to add back into the sauce if you need it AND warms up the serving bowl. Hot bowl meets hot pasta!
