- Add salt at this stage as you cannot season later on.
- Do not rinse off the pasta after heating, as washing it will take away any flavour and seasoning it has.
- Using pasta in a salad? Run it through a colander under cold water. This stops the pasta from getting too soft.
- Remember that thin pasta works best with simple sauces while complex shapes pastas are apt for thicker sauces.
- If the pasta is still firm when you bite on it, it's done.
