Spaghetti: cook it properly!

Spaghetti, together with extra virgin olive oil and tomato, is the main ingredient of this dish, which should be prepared according to a few simple but essential rules:
  • Use a large and tall pot that will give pasta all the room it needs to cook without getting sticky.
  • One hectogram of spaghetti requires at least 1 liter of water: a large amount of water will yield the constant temperature that pasta needs to cook properly.
  • Add salt only after water has come to a boil, as salt slows down boiling time.
  • Once the salt has dissolved, place the spaghetti into the pot and slightly raise the flame, then keep stirring for the first few minutes to prevent any sticking.
  • Remove the spaghetti from heat about 2 minutes before the time suggested on the package, as you will complete the cooking by stir-frying them with the fresh tomato sauce.
Spaghetti is perfectly al dente when soft on the outside and crunchy on the inside: if you break a strand you will notice that the core will be lighter in color.
