Oh no you don’t. I graduated from Tiny Tim‘s Preschool and Kindergarten where they taught me the finer points of eating off of a tray. That Establishment always evenly mixed the sauce with the noodles. So that is how I roll.
Well, here's another point. For visual appeal, it looks more appetizing when you see a plate of pasta with a nice, contrasting splash of red sauce. When it is mixed together, it looks unappetizing. Of course with leftovers, some people find it convenient to just stir it together and zap it in the microwave.That's my point as well! The guys seem to like it that way... And I like to "control" how much sauce is on my pasta. The debate here will be resolved by this thread, btw. lol
