Strichetti - italian maccheroni - cooking classes

Cook your pasta in boiling, salted water.

Once the pasta rises to the top of the pot, taste and then strain the pasta.

Fresh pasta cooks in about 1 minute, depending on how thin you have made the dough.

Really the only way to tell if the pasta is correctly cooked is to taste it. It should be al dente – firm, yet tender.
