And when it’s used with this easy recipe, the results are phenomenal. Your overall boil time allows for this to be as thin and soupy or thick and creamy as your taste buds call for. I even like to do this recipe backwards and soften the pasta first by boiling it in water. Drain the pasta, but don’t rinse, and even leave a few tablespoons of pasta water in the pan. Doing so will add to a wonderful creamy texture once you add your soup and milk to boil.
