Pasta is perfect for lunch, for dinner, for happy times and bad times. There is so much to love about pasta that our space here won’t fit. But cooking the perfect pasta is not as easy as it may sound. To cook your pasta al dente, you need to follow some easy tips. Here is what you need to do to have the perfect pasta dish:
- Make sure that you start with enough cold water. There should be room for your pasta to move in the water after it is cooked.
- Don’t add oil to your water. Some people do this to prevent their pasta from sticking but they can end up with greasy pasta.
- Add more salt than you think you should. Remember that your pasta will only absorb some of the salt in the water. 1 tablespoon of salt for every 2 liters of water is the minimum. Add more according to your preference.
- Use the cooking water for the sauce. The water will add consistency to your sauce.
