Prepare Perfect Pasta the Italian Way:
✔ For 16 oz pasta, boil at least 4 quarts water.
✔ Add salt to taste, if desired.
✔ Add pasta to boiling water.
✔ Stir gently and return to a boil.
✔ Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.
A shorter cooking time results in a more al dente (firm, but tender) texture. Drain well and serve with your favorite sauce. Buon appetito!
