Italians in particular pride in your kitchen. One of the most popular dishes is spaghetti.
The most widely accepted way to cook spaghetti is to start with a deep pot, put in cold water and wait for it to boil. Some people advise adding salt to the water to make it boil faster. This advice is given for spaghetti and pasta in general.
Once the water is boiling, then it is time to add the spaghetti noodles. Place in the water, stir to separate (most at this point say they use a fork to make sure that you can completely separate) and ensure that the entire length of the dough is submerged. So it’s time to wait for the pasta to cook, stirring frequently to prevent sticking to the pan or the rest of the pasta in a large group.
Sound familiar? Well, apparently, we’ve been doing it wrong for years. Instead of the complicated process described above, there is a method that not only makes it faster, but also provides a large liquid used for sauces or other cooking.
First, use a pan. I know, it seems entirely too strange. However, using a pan can be effective. Then add the spaghetti noodles. No, the first water is not added.
Third, pour a liter of water over noodles. This has to be cold water. That’s another big difference with respect to the known way of cooking spaghetti. Also, only use a half liter of water. This is significantly lower than normally used to cook spaghetti.
Cold water spaghetti prevents sticking together. The less water is due to the use of a pan instead of a deep pot.
The kitchen pasta efficiently, and the water turns that can be used for other cooking. This is an advantage compared to the huge amounts of water used being drained out of dough and down the drain. It also saves a considerable amount of energy.
