Tips For cooking Pasta Perfectly
Though it might look obvious, adding pasta to boiling water and cook until done, prepping the pasta perfectly can make or break any pasta recipe. You want your pasta to be cooked right, not mushy and definitely not chewy.
- Always use a large pot for cooking pasta so that there is enough room for pasta to move around. A small pot will make the pasta clump together resulting in a sticky mass.
- Bring the water to a full boil before adding the pasta.
- Also don’t forget to add salt and few drops of oil to the pasta while cooking
- Keep stirring every now and then
- Once done pasta should be soft yet firm and al dente. Don’t be tempted to cook for ling. Usually the cooking time varies from brand to brand.
- Always reserve 1/2 cup of pasta cooked water. You can use this water to dilute the sauce or to loosen the dish if need be.
