    I could be imagining things, but it sounds like you are describing a wet sauce

      I wouldn't call a drizzle of olive oil to bind the herbs to the pasta a "sauce".

        I would.

        where did he mention water?

        Water is not required for a sauce.

            the operable word in this thread is wet. that implies water. no oils only

            I disagree.

            Cooked pasta is wet. Unless OP is diligently drying every last drop of water off his noodles then there is water in the sauce as well. Also when dressing a pasta dish with a fat like olive oil or butter, it is always a good idea to add a little bit of the water you cooked the pasta in to the sauce to give it a more velvety, creamy texture, rather than just being oily.

              that's an emulsifier

                It is an emulsion. Things like garlic are emulsifiers. Even butter contains some emulsifiers to keep it from separating, but it's not nearly as powerful as garlic. Emulsions have a creamy texture (cream is by definition an emulsion) whereas straight oil or butter tend to just feel greasy.

        He didn't. He mentioned a wet sauce.

        sauce
        /sôs/
        noun
        noun: sauce; plural noun: sauces; noun: the sauce

        1.
        thick liquid served with food, usually savory dishes, to add moistness and flavor.

          Are you trying to play some kind of autistic word gotcha for giggles or do you truly struggle with differentiating a light drizzle of olive oil and sprinkling of spices to a thick sauce like marinara, vodka cream sauce, or ragu?

    Here's a fine example of a sauce very similar to OP's sauce:

      >1 cup of olive oil
      Bro, I'm talking about tossing it in a drizzle to get some olive oil flavor and help the herbs cling.
      Whether or not you consider a thin layer of oil a "sauce" is irrelevant, my statement is meant to compare it to thick sauces made in sauce pans with tomato or cream bases and the like which typically go on pasta.

            For what? Your irrational intentions that run counter to your statements? How about the context clue that you're on a website for mean-spirited autists?

              Nah, my statements are pristine. You're just a pseud. I bet you don't even have autism, you're just a midwit desperate to feel smart and every time you fail, you have to fall back on "B-be patient with me, I have autism."

        To be fair, 1 cup of olive oil on a whole pound of spaghetti is relatively light.

          All the same, buttering your toast isn't putting sauce on it.

            Yeah, and putting margarine on toast also isn't putting sauce on it
