Save The Water From Cooking Pasta For Another Use !
Yesterday I cooked a packet of spaghetti and when I went to drain it I thought why waste the water down the drain when I'm sure I could use it for something else. So I drained it over a bowl and waited till a little cooler and poured it into 2 jars and put into the fridge until I cook and then use it for something else. One jar has 370 mils I will use that to replace the water when making a loaf of bread tomorrow and today I made pastry as I'm making meat and vegetable pasties and I used 100mils in the pastry recipe in place of the water. What else could you use it for, perhaps add to soups and casseroles, you can really use it in place of liquid in just about anything from cakes,muffins etc...Does any one else do this ! is it something you would do !
I'm sure where ever there is an extreme water shortage they would find another use for it ...Would love to hear from others please post and leave a comment ....
