PASTA. Intro to Foods and Nutrition. Cooking Tips and Tricks. How much?
Intro to Foods and Nutrition
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!)
DO NOT PUT A LID ON THE POT!!!
IT WILL BOIL OVER!!!
Make it firm, with a bit of “bite.” Italians like it
To test, take one piece out of the water and let it cool, then bite.
Just say no!!!
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!
