Why Cook Spaghetti & Sauce Together? 

There's something special about it when you cook Spaghetti and Sauce together in one pot.

As it cooks, the spaghetti releases starch into the sauce, giving the sauce a creamy texture and rich flavor.

It’s important to get the ratios correct and add broth at the start of cooking since the spaghetti will absorb the broth as it cooks.
