Pasta Perfect Timing ?

Cook fresh pasta in a large deep pot, about 4 cups, 1L, water for every 100 grams of pasta. Bring water to a rolling boil, toss in salt to taste, then stir in pasta. When water comes back to a boil, keep an eye on your pasta, cooking just to AL DENTE. This means when it is tender, but is still some resistance to the bite. Remove cooked pasta from the water by straining trough a colander then immediately return to the pot or a hot dish. Never rinse pasta unless it is to be used for a cold salad. Also, do not allow the pasta to dry out or it will start sticking together. If necessary, stir a little hot water or oil into the cooked pasta to keep it slippery. Your pasta is now Ready for the sauce!
Notice: TIMING makes the difference between an okay pasta meal and GREAT pasta meal. Pasta that seats too long absorbs its sauce and gets dry, so make sure that your pasta, your sauce, and your dinner guests are all ready at the same time!
