Here’s The Real Reason Your Pasta Spoon Has A Hole In It

I love spaghetti. Really, I love all carbs in general. And making pasta is an easy dinner staple in our home.

While making dinner the other night, I got to wondering: Does the hole in the middle of my spoon actually have a purpose aside from letting water drain out?

I did some research and it does have a neat use, it turns out. The little hole in your spoon is approximately one serving size of pasta.
