How to Cook Pasta in the Italian Style

In Italy everyone is able to cook pasta. It's part of our tradition, our culture,our cuisine, however there are some things that it's better to not forget

Use 1 liter of water and 10 g of salt for 100 grams of pasta. Boil water in a large pot

Once the water boils, put the pasta into the water, and then mix quickly with a fork or spoon. The important thing is to mix immediately to prevent sticking, and mix sometimes during the cooking also

Cook the pasta, following the time indicated on the package, with flame high enough. For the cooking time of pasta, usually it varies from 3 to 8 minutes, depending on the format. The best way to find out if the pasta is cooked is to taste it. Real Italian pasta must be cooked "al dente" that means have to be cooked but not overcooked

Homemade fresh pasta need to be cooked for few minutes, when pasta comes up to the water wait 2 min. and then take off
