Basics: fresh pasta

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
16 cups Water
4 teaspoons Salt
1 pounds Fresh 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 1-3 minutes or until tender but firm.

Drain well.

Tip: If a sauce is to be served on pasta, do not rinse. The starch on the surface of the pasta will allow the sauce to cling to the pasta.
