I don't know what tossing pasta with the sauce or not has to do with my "imagination".... I agree that there is no one way to do things (most things anyways) but usually there are bad/better/good/best ways available. IMO if your not tossing the pasta and sauce together they aren't going to be as good as they could be. Not that they will be bad, just not as good. I gotta say - I hope that you are able to learn and try new things as you go through the rest of your life. Anyways, we're getting off track. I'd ask you to PM me if you want to discuss further.
