How to cook pasta?

January 5, 2009 8:24am CST
I like pasta, its content, its shape, its color, everything in the material. But when it comes to something to eat, I am at a loss. For the noodles, you just put them in boiled water, they easily go soft and suitable for eating. How can I get pasta suitable for eating, and what are normally poured onto it to make pasta delicious, as served in the restaurant?

as for pasta, you need to boil it in water for a longer period than instant noodles. and add lots of water. I normally boil my pasta in a small pot and it's mostly 3/4 full of water. Remember, the long you boil your pasta in water, the softer or soggier it gets. When the pasta starts to change from a darker yellow into a lightish yellow, your pasta is ready. IN fact, you can also test it out by using a fork to press the pasta. If it gets smashed, VOILA, your pasta is READY... And to top it off, i'd pour the normal bolognese sauce (tomato sauce) that can be found in jars off the shelf. I don't know about your country but mine has it all over.
