Step 8: Dry and Cook the Pasta

Picture of Dry and Cook the Pasta
I like to hang the pasta up to dry for a little while, but if you are cooking the pasta immediately it isn't necessary. Take some chopsticks or skewers and wedge them under a couple of plates and just throw your pasta over. Let the pasta dry for an hour or so and then freeze it or cook it.

It only takes a couple of minutes to cook fresh pasta so watch the pot closely.

If you need something explained more clearly or another picture to clarify the process add a comment and I will help you out.

very good article. I use the manual method when making pasta shaped like fettucine or rustica,. When making spaghetti or linguini i use the machine. I also go ahead and cook the pasta as soon as it is ready without any drying time. Tastes ten times better than the packages stuff.
