Having tried his other recipes I had to look up more and found this. If you follow the directions and shut the heat off and let it sit, it works swell for a slight hint of flavor. If you just boil it you don't notice it so much. I have found out if you use less water (not more spices) it gives more flavor to the pasta. Use 1/2 gallon of water and place pasta in the water when it is cold. Bring to a boil and turn off the heat, let it sit 8 Min. WOW!!

This did not enhance the spaghetti at all. No one could tell the difference between this just boiling it. It did enhance the was the kitchen smelled but that was about it.

This did enhance my spaghetti but my sauce has enough salt. I was thirsty for hours after eating.

Overall, did not find that this enhanced the flavor of the food. It did add on extra calories and sodium. Sorry this was not for us. Thanks for the post.

I followed the recipe exactly except that I used linguine noodles instead of spaghetti. I didn't find it all that different from having plain spaghetti.

We had leftovers last night. I had chicken and my husband wanted the homemade spaghetti sauce. So I cooked some angelhair for him, using this method. With the sauce, I don't think there was a noticeable difference in flavor. But I decided to indulge in a little pasta with butter & parmesan and could taste a subtle flavor. I do the same thing by adding marinara sauce to the pasta water.

This was a change but I didn't notice it unless I ate the spaghetti noodle by itself. Next time I will cook it the old fashion way just so I don't have to take the time to dump the extra stuff in.

It wasn't bad, but I don't think it added anything to my spaghetti.
