Step 2: Get the water on the stove!
If your stove is anything like mine, the water will take a while to boil. This way, it'll be boiling around the time everything starts coming together!
You'll want to use quite a bit of water - in my case, I filled the stock pot about halfway. This will give the pasta room to move as it cooks and keep it from sticking.
Add a couple of generous pinches of salt to season the water. :D
Once the pasta is cooked, drain it and let it hang out in the colander until the sauce is done!
