Looks good. Conservatism though has nothing to do with it. I question authenticity too because I want to eat food that I enjoy regardless of how authentic it is or not. It's just not relevant to me. But rinsing pasta is not about authenticity for me, it just gives a very undesirable texture to the pasta. You probably enjoy that texture, but I don't and it's ok to disagree about that, nothing to do with conservatism.
