We all love Pasta! Fettucine, Linguine, Ravioli…
A staple in almost every home, pasta is served at least twice a week in a variety of ways. From spicy meat sauce or stuffed with seafood, to stirring up a treat with tasty veggies; this simple, yet satisfying food is perfect for lunch or dinner!
What I love about pasta is the variety of taste, colour and texture. Some are long and skinny, others are short and thick (we are still talking about Pasta here). But the best thing is that it is so quick and easy to prepare.
- Cover the pot when you bring water to a boil. This helps to lower the air pressure directly over the water, making it
easier to boil.
- Never mix pasta types in one pot. They all have different cooking times.
- Watch the cooking process carefully. Pasta can overcook very quickly.
- If the pasta is to be used in a casserole, undercook it slightly. It will finish cooking to perfection while in the oven or skillet.
