Let's talk Pasta

Let's talk fresh Pasta
we should all know how to cook fresh pasta
So let's get to it!
1- Use plenty of water in a large pot
1 gallon of water per pound of Fresh Pasta
Filtered Water Tastes better
2- Add salt if desired
½ tablespoon per quart of water.                                    
Sea salt tastes better
Regular salt is ok
3- Add vegetable oil
1 teaspoon per quart of water.
Oil helps to prevent the Fresh Pasta from sticking together
4- Cover the pot and bring to a boil over high heat
Covering the pot helps to increase the temperature and reduce the time it takes to boil the water
4- Add Fresh Pasta and stir gently to ensure separation
Stirring prevents sticking.
A wooden spoon is preferable
“Keep pot uncovered”
Keep the cooking water boiling
5- Bring back to a boil
then wait minutes:
Angel Hair 1.5”
Spaghetti 7”
Tallarini 2”
Linguini 3”
Fettuccini 7”
Pappardelle 5”
Macaroni 5”
Bucatini 5”
Bucatoni 5”
Fusilli 7”
Piccolo Fusilli 7”
Rigatoni 5”
Penne 5”
Tagliatelle 6”
Rotini 5”
Ziti 5”
Stir occasionally
6 –Taste the Fresh Pasta
Remove a piece from the pot and eat it
Fresh Pasta is ready to eat when the texture is to your liking
Firm Fresh Pasta (al dente) is best
7- Place a large strainer in the sink
Clean and empty the sink to avoid cross contamination
8- Pour Fresh Pasta into the strainer to drain
Don’t rinse cooked pasta. If you do, the sauce won’t cling to it
Rinse Fresh Pasta only if it will be used for a salad or will be set aside or stored for later use.
