How to make Spaghetti with Milk

A decadent dish, Spaghetti with milk, sweet, smooth, and delicious.

Who remembers Spaghetti with Milk? Or do you still cook spaghetti with milk?

Spaghetti with Milk used to be my favorite supper dish back home. On rainy nights, a hot late dinner was all I looked forward to. Whether it was porridge or Spaghetti with milk, the smell of cinnamon and star anise was used to perfume the entire house.

The best way to enjoy this dish is to cook it with fresh milk. Too bad I don’t live on a farm. I would love to try the recipe with boiled fresh milk. The taste must be delightful, especially when the milk is boiled with cinnamon sticks.

To make the spaghetti recipe

There are many ways to make Spaghetti with Milk. Some people cook the pasta al dente, then finish cooking it in a creamy milk and spice mixture. The spice mixture is usually made with cinnamon, anise star, and nutmeg. Let’s not forget the salt. Yes, salt! When you add a pinch of salt to boiled milk, the taste changes.

Other people cook the pasta directly in milk and spice mixture, my favorite way and the best way to make this dish. When the pasta is cooked in the mix, it absorbs the milk’s flavors and the spices. You always hear a culinary chef say to add spices when boiling pasta and that it is the best trick to make your pasta taste different.

This dish can be made with any pasta such as spaghetti, linguine, or vermicelli. Whatever the choice is, it will still be good. The timing will be different because of the thickness and shape of the pasta. The pasta is cooked in a seasoned milky mixture with vanilla extract, sugar, lime rind, and butter – everything that is already in your cupboard. So get ready to feel like a kid again and make Spaghetti with Milk.

Note abd tips:

  • To make Spaghetti with Milk, you can use any size of Spaghetti, linguine, or vermicelli. Add additional milk if necessary.
  • It is best to use a heavy bottom pan as the pasta tends to stick to the bottom of the pan or pot.
