Proportions. Whatever type of pasta you change, choose a large saucepan, and pour plenty of water. Salt is hard not to regret. As the Italians say: "Water for pasta should be as salty as the sea." For 500 ml of water, you will need 50 grams of pasta and half a tablespoon of salt.
Add salt to boiling water. This is due to the fact that salt lowers the boiling point, water should be prescribed before adding pasta, reduce its temperature by 1-2 degrees, and put pasta only in boiling water equal to 100 ° C.
Dipped pasta in boiling water? Cover immediately to restore the temperature. Under the lid, the water will start to boil, so reduce the heat to medium and cook until done.
Cooking time depends on the type of pasta, then we'll talk about it in more detail. On average, cook pasta for 5-7 minutes. If you plan to combine them then with the sauce and torment a little, then cook them for 4-5 minutes maximum to the state of "al-dente".
When the pasta is ready, drain the water and add a little olive oil so they don't stick together. But to wash the finished pasta with water is not necessary. Durum wheat varieties allow you to knead the dough, which sticks together and does not lose its shape.
