So, you're cooking pasta. It can be spaghetti, macaroni, whatever… and you do as you've always done: Just pour the entire pot into the colander, letting the boiling hot water circle down the drain. But stop! Wait! Rewind the tape! That starchy, hot water is a golden ticket to a creamy sauce, if you know what you're doing. Here, we mix it with ricotta, making a creamy base for a subtle yet powerful pasta with mushrooms and thyme. Waste not, want not.
