Perfectly cooked pasta isn't easy to achieve. You need to watch it boil like a hawk to achieve that perfect density.
But, thanks to food author Harold McGee's pasta cooking technique, you may find that getting perfect pasta is all about the pan.
Yes, using a pan, not a pot! Here's how it works:
Step 1: Reach for a frying pan instead of a pot.
Step 2: Put your pasta in the pan, before the water.
Step 3: Pour enough water into the pan so that the water is covering the noodles by at least a centimetre.
Step 4: Turn your stove to medium-high heat, and stir occasionally.
That's it! Your pasta will cook in about 10 minutes.
