Due to the heat of summer nights, pasta dishes make an excellent dinnertime selection. But it is essential to know which variety to select, how to cook it properly and enjoy its flavours fully.
Certain sauces pair perfectly with certain kinds of noodles – this was not deliberated upon, it simply evolved over generations. For instance, spaghetti or linguine pairs well with light sauce that coats each strand rather than chunkier varieties that do not cover as many threads.
Keep this in mind when adding pasta to the pot: resist the urge to throw in noodles before the water has fully reached a rolling boil, as that will result in soggy noodles. Instead, be patient and allow your noodles to slowly rehydrate in hot water; this will ensure even cooking. Once your noodles are finished cooking evenly, drain and immediately toss with your chosen sauce so that it can absorb its flavors while emphasizing their texture.
