Boil water in a large pot. To make sure pasta doesn’t stick together, use at least 4 pints of water for every 8 ounces of pasta. Make sure that the water is at a fast, fierce, rolling boil before you add the pasta.
Salt the water with at least a tablespoon of salt. The salty water adds flavour to the pasta.
Pour pasta into boiling water. Boil undercover for 10 – 12 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.
