So, what exactly is pasta?
Pasta is one of the staple foods of the Italians. It is basically dough that is molded in various shapes and sizes.

You may use a creamy white sauce, a tangy tomato sauce, or some delightful herby variant. As you mix-and-match various sauces and ingredients, you give rise to new and exotic pasta recipes! 


Pasta is a one-dish meal, usually served with warm, freshly-baked bread like Garlic Bread, herbed bread or other artisan breads. Sumptuous and tasty, pasta is loved by young and old alike.

8 Things to keep in mind while making a pasta recipe
1. Do not make the pasta way ahead of serving time as it tends to dry up after a while. If you do, unavoidably, have to prepare it earlier, adjust the consistency and heat before serving.
2. The pasta has to be cooked “al dente,” which means to the right time.
3. Always boil the pasta in enough water with salt in it.
4. Once the pasta is boiled, drain it and refresh it with cold water. Then, drizzle olive oil, cover and set aside till the sauce and other things are ready to toss the pasta.
5. Pasta recipes should neither be dry nor too saucy.
6. Always garnish the pasta with some grated Parmesan cheese to get an authentic Italian feel.
7. While making the pasta, do not mix it a lot as the pasta will break. Just keep tossing lightly.
8. Always try and make the pasta recipes in a broad non-stick pan so that it is easy to toss and mix lightly without mashing the contents.
