Follow these 3 steps and make every pasta meal a success!
- Big Pot
- Lots of H2O
- A Smile!
- Cook pasta in lots of water! 4 quarts for every pound of pasta.
Never less than 3 quarts no matter how much pasta you are cooking!
Use a big pot. I recommend an 8 quart pot.
- Salt your pasta water. 1½-2 tablespoons per pound. Less if your ingredients are also adding salt!
- Time and taste test your pasta. Begin 1 minute shy of the instructions, and taste test every 30 seconds. You are striving for "al dente" - tender but firm to the bite!
- Enjoy Perfect Pasta!
