  1. Basics for new cooks:

  2. In large pot, cover and bring water and salt to full rolling boil.

  3. Stir in pasta, separating pieces; return to boil and boil, uncovered and stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes or until tender but firm.

  4. Drain well.

  5. Tip: Fine strands and small shapes of dried pasta cook in as little as 3 minutes.

  6. Tip: If pasta is to be coated with a sauce, do not rinse. The starchy coating on pasta aids in holding sauce to the pasta.
