For boiling the macaroni pasta perfectly, boil enough water in a large pan. If you use a small pan, the pasta will clump together on boiling. Cover the pan with a lid to make the water boil faster.
Once the water boils vigorously, add little salt. The salt will season the pasta as they cook, which will give you flavorful pasta. Also, the water when tasted should taste like seawater for the pasta to have perfect seasoning.
Add the pasta to the boiling water and stir once.
Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally and gently until the pasta is tender. Cooking times may vary with the size and the thickness of the pasta. Very small pasta (like macaroni, fusilli, conchiglie, penne) may cook in 8 to 10 minutes.Refer to the package instructions to understand the exact cooking time.
After 10 minutes, remove one pasta out of the water and keep it aside to cool a little. Bite into the pasta or break it with a fork to check if it's still hard in the center or if it's cooked as you like. For perfectly cooked pasta, cook until it's al dente, which means it is a little firm in the center.
Immediately drain the cooked pasta into a sieve or colander. Keep aside.
