Step 2: Pasta

Picture of pasta
I was taught by an old Italian woman to use LOTS of water when making pasta, it's kind of amazing how people will try to cook a pound of pasta in a quart of water. I use a 10qt pot about 3/4 full with lots of salt, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Bring the water to a hard boil, pour in your pasta of choice and cook until it's as tender as you want and then drain
