Should pasta be rinsed?

Pasta should not be rinsed after cooking. This method was utilized to rinse excess starch off the pasta. When poor quality wheat is used to make the pasta, it releases too much starch when it's cooked and sticks together. Because Barilla pasta is made with high quality durum wheat, the natural starches released from our pasta complement the pasta meal. These starches allow the sauce to bind to the pasta better.
