How to cook Pasta?

Pasta is easy to cook but if left unnoticed, you can even ruin it easily. They are attention seekers. 🙂 Cook it as per the packet instructions or follow the below-mentioned tips to cook it just right:

  1. Take a large saucepan to boil pasta. Small pans overcrowd the pasta and make them sticky and mushy.
  2. Add ONLY SALT in water to boil pasta. NO OIL is needed.
  3. Add pasta only when the water starts to boil.
  4. Keep stirring in between to prevent them from sticking with each other.
  5. Pasta takes around 10 – 12 minutes to cook. Keep an eye out, and take a bite of it to see if they are cooked. Boil only until they are just cooked. Then remove from the flame and drain off the water.

Is this recipe Vegan?

You can skip the cheese and add Nutritional Yeast to make it cheesy and vegan.
