It’s way better when you put little effort and cook pasta at home!
Making pasta is not too difficult but it can be a bit tricky. To make this process more convenient and easy we bring you a list of Top Ten Cooking Tips for Making Pasta. Here it goes —
#1 To add flavour and reduce stickiness, add salt to boiling water. Reduce the flame and add the pasta with a stir and return the water to a boil.
#2 Not using enough water and insufficient stirring of the pasta can also cause gooey pasta. So put plenty of water.
#3 It is sometimes suggested to add a little oil to the cooking water to help prevent the pasta from sticking together.
#4 Taste the pasta to determine if it is done. Perfectly cooked pasta should be ‘al dente’ which is Italian for “to the tooth.” This means the pasta should be tender but still have a slightly firm bite.
#5 Drain the pasta as quickly as possible because it will continue to cook in the hot water.
#6 If the pasta starts to stick together it can be loosened by taking some of the cooking water that was saved when it was drained and pouring it over the pasta.
#7 Keep fresh herbs on hand as a quick and easy way to add a lot of flavor.
#8 Get the pasta sauce on the pasta immediately after you drain it. Pasta will cool down fast and start sticking to each other without sauce or oil to keep them apart.
#9 Be sure that the sauce and pasta are heated just long enough for them to become sufficiently hot, remove them from the heat as soon as possible otherwise the pasta can become overcooked.
#10 Let your sauce simmer for a while, it helps concentrate the flavors and thicken the sauce.
With #10 we have come to the end of this top ten list. The top ten list of pasta cooking tips has been compiled by us to help all pasta lovers cook pasta with ease at home. Hope you will like this list. 🙏
