How to know whether pasta is cooked or not??

It is very easy to pasta, wen it is ready it should be tender but still firm when you eat it, this is called "al dente." To make sure that it is ready, bite into the pasta , but what you have to remember is that it will continue to cook and soften even after it has been taken from the water.

cook your pasta noodles as per package directions...most pasta brands recommend cooking it for 11 minutes in briskly boiling water. Check your noodles for doneness by cutting the noodle and if you don'tsee a white uncooked portion in the center of your noodle, turn-off fire immediately and drain the water. Pour cold running water on the noodles and put 2 tbsp oil to prevent sticking. Hope this helps.

Formee it´s easy. I pick one with a spoon and try it. I like my pasta "al dente" wich doesn´t mean I like it raw. You must check out also how do you like them. Usually kids like them better cooked than grownups. Happy posting!
