TIPS, RECIPES AND INFORMATION
For good cooking it is necessary to evaluate the opportune amount in relation to the quantity and shape of the pasta to be cooked (for paccheri, for example, it takes much more water than for penne): the ideal ratio should be about 5 liters per 500 gr. of pasta.
The shape of the pot it is important, because it must be able to completely and immediately contain all the pasta when we 'lower it' into boiling water (to cook spaghetti and all long pasta, an oval-shaped pot would be better, where you dip the pasta horizontally) . It is not always necessary to 'stir' the rough pasta (because it is bronze drawn) during cooking: this operation, if necessary, should be done only a few minutes after boiling, taking care to use wooden ladles and / or forks.
The draining of cooked pasta must be done very gently, extracting the pasta from the water (with forks, slotted spoons or using the colander basket already inserted in the pot) when it is still very al dente to allow the subsequent seasoning, completion of the preparation (for this it is useful keep some cooking water).
Finally, it should be remembered that pasta cooked al dente, in addition to better preserving its nutritional principles, is more suitable for tasting with the satisfaction of the pleasure of 'palatability' due to its shape.
