So you may be thinking, “How do I cook pasta? I just dump it in hot water, right?!” Wrong! There are a few points to follow if you want to get perfect pasta, which is a joy to eat.
First of all, add a generous amount of salt to the water so that the pasta doesn’t taste bland.
To the salted water, add a healthy splash of olive oil and bring the water to a rolling boil. Next, add the pasta and cook it as per the timing shown on the packet.
Once the time is up, taste a bit and make sure that it is ‘Al Dente’ or ‘just firm to the bite’ and not soggy.
If you follow these tips, you’ll be saying ‘Mamma Mia’ after every mouthful!
