Tips For Cooking Pasta

  • Always Cook pasta in boiling water: this will ensure even cooking of pasta
  • Never wash the pasta for cooling after boiling:  as the starch will wash away. Starch will be required for binding the pasta with sauce and gives more glutinous feel  on pasta
  • Spread the pasta evenly after boiling so that it cools down faster and there is no excess carry-over cooking if the pasta is kept one above the other
  • Fresh pasta  dough can be infused with lots of flavor and color  like saffron(yellow), squid ink(black), basil(green), paprika(red)
