Myth 2: Cooking perfect pasta is difficult

With a few simple tips, cooking perfect pasta is a breeze! First, start with enough water – at least a quart of water for every quarter pound of pasta – and be sure to add a generous pinch of sea salt to enhance the pasta’s flavor. Skip adding oil to the cooking water – it doesn’t prevent pasta from sticking together. In fact, it actually prevents the sauce from clinging to the pasta.
