Woman reveals why pasta serving spoon has hole in the middle – it’s actually genius

SOMETIMES the things we use in our everyday routine have a certain design that we just take for granted and don't question.

In this case, a mom brought up the design for a pasta spoon and why exactly it has a hole in the middle.

Taking to social media, Taneesha Narvaez revealed that you can finally stop making too much pasta at once with a quirky hack.

She said in her video: "How many of you guys can guess what this is? It's a pasta spoon.

"Now, do you know what the hole is used for?

"This hole is actually used to measure one serving size of pasta."

The typical service size for pasta is about two ounces and if measured with a cup, it's just one.

However, with spaghetti and similar pasta, it's tough to measure two ounces if you don't have a food scale.

"Let me show you guys," the mom said as she simply grabbed a fistful of pasta, slipped it through the hole to make sure there was enough and then put it in her pot.

"You put the spaghetti and noodles through there and that's considered one serving size for one person."

Fortunately, TikTok is filled with plenty of hacks.

In fact, one user recently revealed that the way to stop tearing up when chopping onions is by simply putting a damp paper towel near.

She said: “The acid that is in onions is attracted to a water source. 

“So your tear ducts are usually the first place. So all you have to do is get a damp paper towel, fold it up, keep it on your cutting board. 

“That acid will be drawn to the wet paper towel and not your tear ducts.”
