Leftover spaghetti or Alfredo may seem like an easy work lunch idea, but microwaving it in a Tupperware container doesn’t always yield the tastiest results. Luckily, just adding in a bit of water can make a huge difference.

According to Bon Appetit, the key to perfectly revived pasta is splashing in a tablespoon or two of water into your container, loosely covering it and microwaving it for 90 seconds at a time, stirring until everything is nice and hot. Cover, and carefully shake the pasta to evenly coat each piece with sauce. (Do be careful here: built up steam can pop your lid off, so be sure to release pressure often.)
