How to prevent pasta from sticking

We usually do pasta and when it has been done for a while we discover that it has stuck, the appearance is no longer the same and it is heavy to eat it. In the pasta salad with fresh tomato and basil I promised that I would come back to tell you how to get the paste not to stickOf course something I learned from people experienced in the field, Italian people. Let's go there!.First we put water to heat and when it's boiling we add the pasta (find out how many grams of pasta per person are needed), this time I use spaghetti. The fact that the water is boiling is important because otherwise the pasta will spend more time in the water than necessary and will become too soft. Usually the pasta package contains the manufacturer's directions, which I use only as a guide. To check that the pasta is and cook until pasta is I prefer to take a little and try. In the case of spaghetti we have a trick very simple: Take a spaghetti and throw it against the kitchen tile, if it sticks it means that it is and cook until pasta isIf it is not, it will simply bounce like a rubber ball.

    I think it's a great trick that I think I've ever read but I have a question if you pour cold water on it and after well drained, add the sauce when you bring it to the table. Isn't the dish cold?
    Thanks, the blog, I really like it

      Hi, Diana,

      True, I forgot to write that small but very important detail. Before serving we would give it a few turns in the pot again so that it gets hot and that's it! Right now I correct it in the article, thank you very much!
