3 Steps to Cooking Perfect Pasta

Follow these 3 steps and make every pasta meal a success!



  1. Cook pasta in lots of water! 4 quarts for every pound of pasta. Never less than 3 quarts no matter how much pasta you are cooking! Use a big pot. I recommend an 8 quart pot.
  2. Salt your pasta water. 1 1/2-2 tablespoons per pound. Less if your ingredients are also adding salt!
  3. Time and taste test your pasta. Begin 1 minute shy of the instructions, and taste test every 30 seconds. You are striving for “al dente” – tender but firm to the bite!
  4. Enjoy Perfect Pasta!
