Too much salt has gone into the spaghetti Bol
Is there anything I could do to rectify or should I just throw it out?
😊 Dh has loaded it up accidentally

Put half a potato in the pot - don't chop it up - and simmer it for a bit...

EDIted to add - discard the potato for eating - that might work

I would never throw something like that out.   You can tone down the salt by making a second batch with no salt, depending on how much extra salt there is.

Alternatively use that batch for lasagne and make sure any further sauce etc you use is unsalted.

Bornagirl I have never throw anything out either
I'm trying the potato first then maybe another batch of meat with no salt
Thanks so much

The potato usually works well. DH then chops the potato up and freezes it for using in stew.

For future reference the potato trick works well to tone down a spicy curry too!

Now I need that trick even more, before my husband gets to commandeer the too hot but very delicious curries. :)

I think I've heard tomato can also lessen the taste?

Used a potato
