Cooking tips and tricks

Cooking Tips and Tricks

  • How much?

    Use 8 oz. (1/2 lb. or 1 cup ) pasta for four people. Cook in plenty of water – 3 quarts for 8 oz. of pasta.(Don’t worry if you make too much. The next day, stir fry leftover pasta and vegetables in a little oil – it tastes great!)


What to do

What to do?

  • Be sure water is at a rolling boil then sprinkle the pasta gradually. Don’t put it in all at once – it’ll stick together and you’ll have “pasta lump” for dinner! Stir now and then so pasta cooks evenly, and …

    DO NOT PUT A LID ON THE POT!!!

    IT WILL BOIL OVER!!!


How long

How long?

  • Check the package for cooking time-spaghetti usually takes 9-10 minutes. Pasta should never be

    MUSHY!!!

    Make it firm, with a bit of “bite.” Italians like it

    “AL DENTE.”

    To test, take one piece out of the water and let it cool, then bite.


Do not

DO NOT…

  • Add oil to the pasta while cooking. This will keep the sauce from clinging to the pasta.

Just say no!!!


Finished

Finished?

  • As soon as pasta is done, carefully drain it into a colander.

  • DO NOT RINSE IT!!! THIS REMOVES NUTRIENTS!

  • NEVER LET IT STAY IN HOT WATER –

    • IT WILL MUSH!!!

Simply winding strings of spaghetti around your fork is one way to eat spaghetti. Eating it with the aid of a large spoon is another. To spoon or not to spoon? It is completely up to you!
