The Boil

When To Add It ?
When the water is salted and boiling, slide in the pasta all at once. All the pasta must be added at the same time to ensure that it cooks uniformly.
Stir immediately with a long wooden Cork or spoon to prevent the pasta from sticking to the bottom of the pot. During cooking, stir occasionally to keep the pasta in constant motion.
How Long To Cook It ?
Always start timing from the moment the water returns to a rapid, rolling boil alter the pasta has been added to the pot. The actual cooking time will depend on the quality, size, and shape of the pasta. Use the timings printed on the packet only as a guide. The way to know when the pasta is cooked is to take some out and have a bite. We advise you to begin testing about 2 minutes before the packet instructions suggest it should be done.
