Basics: dried pasta

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
20 cups Water
2 tablespoons Salt
1 pounds Dried pasta

Basics for new cooks:

In large pot, cover and bring water and salt to full rolling boil.

Stir in pasta, separating pieces; return to boil and boil, uncovered and stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes or until tender but firm.

Drain well.

Tip: Fine strands and small shapes of dried pasta cook in as little as 3 minutes.

Tip: If pasta is to be coated with a sauce, do not rinse. The starchy coating on pasta aids in holding sauce to the pasta.
