Units Scale
  • 2 quarts water (8 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 8 ounces of pasta
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil– optional


  1. Place water and salt in a medium pot and bring to boil over high heat. Add optional olive oil ( to prevent sticking)
  2. Add the dry pasta and give a stir. Bring to boil, lower heat so the pot is gently simmering, uncovered.
  3. Cook until the pasta is soft but still has a little bite to it. Depending on the pasta this time will vary so always check package instructions.
  4. Drain, always saving a cup of hot pasta water.
  5. Use right away, or see notes for storing.


If storing for later, rinse the pasta in cold water until cooled. Drain. Toss generously with olive oil and place in a shallow open container in the fridge. Cover it only after it is completely cold. The idea here is to cool pasta as quickly as possible to prevent unwanted bacteria from growing.
