A Better Way to Cook Pasta!
What is a better way to cook pasta than the traditional way which is to boil it in a stock pot? Boil it in a skillet. Best advice ~ Don't use a Teflon or Calphlon coated skillet. Use copper bottom stainless steel for better results. So, the next time you make pasta, instead of waiting for a huge pot of water to boil, get out your skillet. Add cold water to a large frying pan, add pasta. It will cook perfectly, quickly, and with just enough pasta water left in the pan for a sauce to go with your meal. Another good trick to tastier pasta in the skillet is not to use cold water but cold soup stock.
*note ~ when boiling your pasta in either a skillet or pot, lay a wooden spoon across the top and it won't boil over.
