How To Cook Pasta

Thom Hackett




You will find that your pasta will taste and have a better texture if you use this method.



Cooking Method

In making Pasta, make sure the water is boiling rapidly and that only salt is added.  Do not add oil to the cooking water, stir often to eliminate sticking.  Do not cover the cooking pasta.  Cook the pasta "alla dente" and do not rinse the pasta before using.  If you are not using the pasta immediately, I recommend that you retain the pasta water, keeping it hot, and re-immerse your cooked pasta before using.  Hot pasta straight from the strainer is best.
