  1. Hi Hannah try this. check out the article in our Top Tips Blog section for more details.
    Follow the Top Tips for Cooking Pasta below.

    Boil the water in a large pot
    Make sure the pasta doesn’t stick together. Use about 4 quarts of water for every pound of pasta. Use enough water, so the pasta doesn’t stick out of the pan once cooking.
    Salt the water with a tablespoon— slightly more is fine
    The salty water will add flavor to the pasta, but you can add salt based on your preference.
    Add the pasta
    Carefully add your pasta into boiling water. If the pasta is long spaghetti then don’t break the pasta; it will soften up within about a minute and fit into the pot.
    Stir your pasta
    As the pasta starts cooking, stir it well with a wooden spoon. If you just leave the past then the pasta then it will stick to the pot.
    Taste test the pasta
    It’s ok to follow the cooking time on the back of the pasta pack. Always try to taste the pasta before draining to make sure the texture is right. It depends on the person bu pasta cooked correctly should be al dente—this means slightly chewy.
    Drain the pasta
    Once cooked to your liking, drain the cooked pasta in a colander. If you are serving hot, add sauce right away. If you’re making a pasta salad then can just run noodles under cold water to stop the cooking.
