drain the pasta in a strainer for a short time, shaking the strainer so all the trapped water runs off. Toss the pasta lightly with oil and do not cover so any extra water can evaporate.

I get the best result by leaving the sauce in the pot under heat, draining and shaking the pasta, then putting it into the sauce pot. Extra water pretty much cooks off, and the whole thing tastes better than separate pasta and sauce.

After you cooked your spaghetti, pour the noodles into a colander or a strainer. Put a bowl or a deep dish under the colander or strainer to collect the excess water as the noodles rest and dry off a bit. You can also fluff the noodles so that it won't stick together and dry out any water in between the pasta or inside the pasta '

Either you aren't draining the spaghetti enough, or your sauce is too watery. It's probably the sauce.

Linda. use a colander, and shake well before returning to the pot and adding the sauce. I never get residual water.
