Cooking Pasta to Perfection in 5 Easy Steps

May 23, 2016 ,

Pasta is among the favorite foods of a great number of people. You can turn it into a very refined meal or simply a quick dish to feed the whole family when you’re in a hurry.

It’s therefore very important to know how to cook pasta properly and make it absolutely irresistible.

1. Use the right cooking pot


The pot you use should be high sided and able to contain a large amount of water (calculate at least 1 liter, or 4 cups, of water for 100g pasta). The water mustn’t exceed 3/4 of the height. Too much water might overflow when it begins to boil; if there isn’t sufficient cooking water, the pasta may not cook properly and become stuck to the bottom of the pan. Do not add oil to the water.
