Making Perfect Pasta

Here are instructions to creating the perfect pasta. These are hints I have read about from many different Italian chefs. If you can boil water, you can make perfect pasta.

Perfect Pasta Tip #1: Use a good amount of water

Use 1 gallon of water per pound of dry pasta. Plenty of boiling water helps the pasta rehydrate. Be sure to use a large pot. Otherwise the water will cool too much when you add the pasta. Your pasta may clump together or become mushy while the water returns to a boil.
Perfect Pasta Tip #2: Don't add oil

Don't add oil to the water. It's a waste. It's adding calories and its not going to do anything. Oil doesn't keep pasta from sticking together. The real way to stop pasta from sticking is to cook it in enough water.

Well, Jackie

You leave no room for doubt concerning some very important steps in the making of pasta. Also, there's no room for doubt, you've provided us with a positively perfect pasta picture. Too bad I can't give you 'Thumbs Up' for each.

Before pouring the pasta and water through your colander, add a cup of cold water. That separates the free starch (the glue) from the pasta. It won't stick and will be like just boiled if you microwave it later.
