In order to prevent spaghetti sauce from becoming runny or watery, always drain your pasta thoroughly. Drain the pasta as soon as it has finished cooking, and let it set in the colander or strainer for a few minutes to make sure all of the excess water has drained off. A few bread crumbs added to the sauce at the last minute can also help the pasta stay thicker longer, as the bread crumbs absorb excess moisture in the sauce.
