BEFORE BOILING:

Prepare a portion of pasta, remembering that when cooking its volume increases twice.

BOILING:

Put farfalle pasta in boiling salted water (1 liter of water for every 100g of pasta, 1 teaspoon of salt per 2 liters of water). Immediately stir to prevent sticking to the pasta to the pot walls. Depending on the manufacturer, farfalle cooking time is between 7 and 9 minutes. The exact cooking time can be checked on the packaging. Time start to count from the time of re-boil water. Stir every 3-4 minutes. We do not cover with the pot. We're trying to see if the pasta is al dente - it should be soft but resilient.

ONCE BOILED:

When the pasta is cooked, drain off very quickly it colander.

SERVING TIPS:

Serve with your favorite sauce and pour olive oil to taste. Farfalle taste good with thick sauces, which may appear big chunks of the various components.

Bon appétit!
