Tips for Cooking Pasta: Use a Big Pot: Cook pasta in a large pot - big enough to hold 6 quarts of water per pound of pasta. Salt: Generously season your cooking water with salt.  A few teaspoons per quart of water is a good place to start.

Tips for Cooking Pasta: Don't Overcook: Boil your pasta until it is al dente, which means it's cooked, but still a bit chewy.   You'll want to test your pasta for flavor and texture every 20 seconds or so during the last few minutes of cooking
