Steps for Spaghetti & Meatballs

1
Done
10 Minutes

Boil the Spaghetti, style al-dente

First, before starting to make the al-dente Spaghetti, preheat the oven at 350 degrees. Put the 1 lb. Spaghetti pasta into the boiling water and mix, mix, mix! Depending on what Spaghetti pasta you bought, cook as directed on package. Continue stirring even if you'll do your biceps workout in your kitchen. Using a slotted spoon (or your utensil of choice), fish out a single pasta, let it cool a bit, then take a bite. If it's al-dente, then take out your pasta... if no, let the pot on the heater and try again in one minute. I used Barilla Spaghetti for this recipe.

How to cook Spaghetti pasta as a professional.

We recommend the Italian styleal-dente, not too mushy yet not too chewy. This means you need a perfect balance, and I’ll show you how to do this.

 

1. Pick a big pot for Spaghetti Pasta

Having a large pot gives pasta plenty of space. Do not crowd the pasta into a tight pot.

2. Fill the pot with water

Besides a big pot, you will need a lot of water too. Fill it with water, put it on fire, and add salt. Do not just give a single tap of the salt shaker (give at least 5 taps)! This will give the paste and flavor boost. Bring the water to a full boil.

3. Put the Linguini pasta in the boiling water

Put the spaghetti pasta into the boiling water and mix, mix, mix! Depending on what type of pasta you bought, cook as directed on the package. Continue stirring even if you’ll do your biceps workout in your kitchen. Using a slotted spoon (or your utensil of choice), fish out a single pasta, let it cool a bit, then take a bite. If it’s al-dente, then take out your pasta… if no, let the pot on the heater and try again in one minute. See here what pasta al-dente means.

4. Drain the water.

If the pasta is al-dente, place a colander in the kitchen sink and drain the water out. To make sure the pasta will remain unbound of each other, put them under cold water for 5 seconds.
