Making Rustichella d’Abruzzo Pasta With Olive Oil
In a large pot, pour four and one half quarts of water and bring to a boil. Sprinkle one tablespoon of sea salt, and put one package of Rustichella d’Abruzzo pasta in the pot.
Cook for 15 minutes while continuing to stir intermittently. This will help prevent uneven cooking and the pasta sticking to the pot.
Beings that pasta can easily be overcooked, you may want to treat yourself early and sample the pasta as you cook it. It is hard to believe but true that pasta also continues to cook for a minute after it is drained.
When it is al dente, and you drain it, always remember never to rinse it, just drain the water.
Using an olive oil cruet, drizzle olive oil over the pasta and blend with your favorite sauce.
