Selecting and Buying
Choosing: The best way to choose this product is to buy the package that is the right amount for your needs, and has large or small enough shapes.
Buying: Inexpensive pastas can be found at bulk stores such as Winco or CostCo, but can be found pretty much anywhere, at reasonable prices.
Procuring: These are very difficult to make at home, buying is recommended.
Preparation and Use
To prepare, boil water in a large saucepan. To boil quickly, add salt. Once the water is at a full boil, add pasta, but not more than would fill more than half of the water. Allow pasta and water to boil together for about 7 minutes, or until pasta is soft enough to eat.
Cleaning: After cooking, rinse pasta under hot water in a colander, and then pour back into warm saucepan to serve.
Conserving and Storing
Pasta can be frozen, but it is not highly recommended. Pasta stores for quite a few months while dry.
