Yes, adding pasta water to whatever your "sauce" is will help the pasta and sauce bond. It has something to do with the starch in the pasta water.

I would also say that the kids should be "persuaded" to understand that food is best when freshly presented on the plate. In other words, get your little butts to the dinner table when the food is ready.
