How to Cook Pasta

To cook pasta and prevent it from sticking, pasta needs Large pot. Use at least 1 Liters of water per 100g. of pasta. Salt is added to the boiling water, not to lower the boiling point. If you dont season the cooking water, the pasta may taste flat, no matter how salty the sauce you dress it in.

  • Bring the water to a full, rolling boil. The temperature will drop once you add the pasta, so make sure its boiling before dropping in the pasta.
  • Gently stir short pasta immediately after adding to water; let spaghetti and long cuts soften for a minute before stirring.
  • Dont combine two types or sizes of pasta in the same pot of water, as they will finish cooking at different times.

Pasta should be cooked until its tender but slightly firm to the bite ( al dente ). If its going to used in a recipe, like baked macaroni and cheese, or lasagna it can be even firmer, since it will absorb liquid and cook more in the oven. The longer you cook pasta, the mushier it gets. Dont rely on the clock to evaluate doneness.

  • Cook according to package instructions (usually 10 to 12 minutes)
  • Drain the pasta in a colander. Rinse with cool water to prevent sticking. Return the colander to the pot and cover to keep it warm.
  • Pasta should be served immediately you may add the sauce of your desire on it  or follow your desired recipes.
