NEVER put oil in your pasta water. Are you crazy, woman? When you drain it, the oil gets on the pasta, which prevents sauce and cheese from adhering to it, which is the ENTIRE POINT of mac & cheese in the first place. All you need to prevent pasta from sticking together is adequate water in a large-enough pot. Try it. Only good things will happen.

Oh, and if you habitually oil but don't salt your pasta water, don't even tell me. There is enough salt in cheesy pastas bakes like this that you don't have to here, but for anything else YOU ARE DOING IT SO WRONG IT HURTS ME PHYSICALLY.

why you anglosaxons insist on putting oil in pasta water I shall truly never understand! bring to boil-add salt-add pasta-don't overcook: that's the only way to do it. where does the oil thing even come from? I've had an aussie, a brit and an american all pull that one on me in separate occasions.

@JessicaLovejoy Yes, I am 25 and 66 months and I don't necessarily have my shit together but I *have* learned not to publish pieces on the internet about how it's so hard to get my shit together aren't I relatable and cute? so there's that.

I feel like you kids have really unrealistic expectations of where you should be at 26. I'm in my 30's and most of this shit still applies to me and I don't caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaare. I mean, maybe it's because I don't have life goals? Maybe I'll get married, maybe I'll make enough money to get out of debt (probably never), and maybe I won't! I'll have fun doing it at least.

@Bostonienne When I was 23, I dated a 25 year old. I thought he was an experienced, older, wiser man. Now I look back on that and laugh and laugh and laaaaaugh.
