Pasta Day ! Cooking Pasta the right way !


     Happy Pasta Day !! 









How to Cook Pasta the right way ! Are you doing it right? 



  1. Use a large pot. Pick a roomy pot that gives the pasta plenty of space to move. ...
  2. Load up the pot with lots of water. ...
  3. Salt the water. ...
  4. Bring the water to a full, rolling boil. ...
  5. Keep stirring. ...
  6. Test the pasta two minutes before it's “ready.” ...
  7. Save a scoop of pasta water. ...
  8. Drain, stir with sauce, and enjoy.

Do I need to rinse it ?



Many people rinse their pasta after cooking it. The only thing this does is remove the starch that helps hold and absorb the sauce. You not only wash away the clinginess, but also the flavor of the pasta. When the pasta is al dente, drain it in a colander.

Pasta Do's & Don'ts




  • Cooking times can vary according to pasta shape, amount, and type (whole-wheat, gluten-free, etc.).
  • Unlike dried pasta, fresh pasta takes only two or three minutes to cook, max.
  • Stuffed pasta, like ravioli, will rise to the surface and float when ready.
  • Don't add any oil to the pasta water
