I’ll share some advice that has helped me in these years as a chef.

To prevent sticking while cooking, it is necessary to have a pot with plenty of water.

1. The fundamental quantities we should respect for cooking pasta are one hundred grams of fresh or dry pasta, two liters of water and ten grams of salt. Sometimes we need to reduce the amount of salt if the sauce is very high in flavor.
2. The salt should be added just before pouring the pasta into the boiling water. Then stir with a spoon or fork. It is recommended to not cover the pot. Drain the pasta and put in the pot with the tomato sauce. Season and serve. Buon Appetito!
