The tomato sauce added to the pasta dish often appears to have stuck to it. But actually does not stick to the pasta, it gets absorbed by it. The pastas are porous in nature while tomato sauce is liquid in nature. When cooking pastas, the sauce is added for color and flavor, which comes as the pasta absorbs sauce.
