How do I prepare Big Green Organic Pasta?
Usually cooks about 10-15 minutes. Start tasting the pasta about a minute before the shortest cook time on the box. All stoves are different, so we recommend tasting noodles until they reach your desired texture. When the pasta reaches your preferred texture, strain it, and rinse under water as you strain. Rinsing the pasta after cooking removes the starch that forms during the cooking process. You can even soak it in the ice water to firm up the texture!
Some tips to decrease the foam: fill your pot with more water, turn the burner down to a lower heat, add a splash of olive oil to the water, and/or scrape some foam off the top with a spoon.
