Pasta is a delicious dish in any of its different recipes. But if the pasta is not cooked properly, it can overcook, become sticky or break, so your dishes will lose flavor and texture. Follow this step by step to know how to cook pasta correctly.
In a large pot, add water and 1 or 2 tablespoons of salt, so that the paste absorbs it during cooking.
Once the water boils. Add the pasta. Stir the first 2 minutes, because this is the time when the starch will come out of the pasta (the starch is like glue) and the stirring will help to avoid sticking.
Do not add oil. This would only make the pasta absorb the oil and not the flavor of the sauce. Let cook the time indicated on the package.
Try to check it until it is al dente (a term that indicates that being bitten, the paste feels firm, but does not last).
Pass the pasta to a colander, and then mix the hot pasta with the sauce. This will make it absorb all the flavor.
