  • Step 2/3

    Now is time to cook the pasta.
I'm using penne this time, but you may use whatever pasta you have, preferably short pasta.
Begin heating a large pot of water for the pasta. When the water for the pasta comes to a boil, add a generous tablespoon of salt and the pasta. Cook al dente, or until firm to the bite, following the cooking instructions on the package but checking the pasta a minute or two before the indicated time, you don't want to overcook it.
