Some tips for cooking Barilla Pasta
- Don’t forget to add the salt! Once the water begins to boil, consider adding salt. As a rule of thumb, you should use approximately ¼ tablespoon of salt for each cup of water, or add to taste. Pour in the pasta once the salt has dissolved and the water is at a rolling boil. Stir the pasta frequently for the first two minutes and then occasionally until the end of the cooking process. As the pasta absorbs the liquid and expands, the water will enhance the flavour of the cooked pasta.
- Skip the oil in your cooking water! You may have heard that you should add oil to the cooking water when making pasta. But actually, because oil is lighter than water, it will not mix with the pasta and will only sit on top. A good quality pasta such as Barilla will not stick together, making it a perfect choice for any pasta recipe.
- Never rinse pasta after cooking! Rising pasta after cooking is not recommended as it will wash away the great flavour, starch & nutrients. The sauce will bind best when the pasta is promptly removed or strained from the cooking water and immediately combined with the sauce in a separate pan.
- When cooking with sauce take your pasta out a minute early! Approximately 1 minute before the end of the suggested cook time, remove the pasta from the pot of boiling water. In a separate pan, add the strained pasta to the sauce. The pasta will finish cooking in the pan with the sauce, which will allow pasta and sauce to truly bind together, creating the best results.
