comment Does salt-seasoned pasta and starchy water in my sauce have to yield a salty sauce?
Since cooking the pasta in salted water is essential, and switching to fresh water or whatever is a PITA, I'd just use less water and thicken with something else. The standard ratio for salting pasta water is 1:10:100 - 1 litre of water for 10g salt and 100g pasta - perhaps you're over-salting the water?

comment Wet Cooked Ham Slices
I think added water for weight applies more to raw meat than cooked ham.

comment Wet Cooked Ham Slices
No, they add water to improve the texture of reformed ham. Better quality ham usually notes 'No Added Water' on the packet.
