Let's boil vermicelli
Prepare a portion of pasta, remembering that when cooking its volume increases twice.
Put vermicelli noodles 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, vermicelli cooking time is between 3 and 5 minutes. The exact cooking time can be checked on the packaging. Time start to count from the time of re-boil water. Stir every 2 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.
When the pasta is cooked, drain off very quickly it colander.
Vermicelli is a perfect ingredient of chicken soup, salads and oriental dishes.
