Full Answer

The recommended ratio of sauce to pasta is 1 1/2 cups sauce to 1 pound of pasta. One pound of dried pasta or 1 1/2 pounds of fresh pasta feeds four adults. Oil-based sauces are paired with pasta in smaller portions with a recommended ratio of 1 cup sauce to 1 pound of pasta. Italian cooking experts warn against oversaucing pasta. There should be just enough sauce to coat the pasta.

    What should you do if you added too much sugar to a recipe?

    A:

    If too much sugar is added to a recipe, adding a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar tones down the sweetness. The amount of apple cider vinegar needed to tone down the sweetness will be determined by the amount of excess sugar that is added to the recipe. Continue adding apple cider vinegar to the recipe until the sweetness is at the desired taste. White distilled vinegar can be used in place of apple cider vinegar for the same effect.
