  • Bring salted water to a boil. Add pasta and return to a boil, occasionally stirring vigorously to keep the pasta separated. Allow to boil 5 min., remove from heat.
  • Allow to cool uncovered until you can place your hand in the water without burning yourself, approx. 10 min. Pasta is cooked perfectly.


The only kind of pasta you can't cook this way is Angel Hair. Angel hair pasta only takes about 3 min. to cook at a boil, and then shock it right away to stop cooking process. As a chef for over 30 years I have cooked a great deal of pasta, and this way is the one I use.
