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.
