Recipe Instructions

  • Pre-Preparation Instructions:

    1. Follow the ratio of 1 pound of pasta per gallon of water.

    2. Fill a tilt skillet, steam kettle, or large pot with cold water and determine how much pasta can be cooked in that amount of water based on ratio.

  • Preparation Instructions:

    3. Bring water to a rolling boil.

    4. For each gallon of water, add 1/8 cup salt.

    5. Add measured pasta and stir to avoid clumping.

    6. Cook pasta to al dente. Time will vary based on factors such as altitude.

    7. Scoop pasta out of pot with a large strainer and place it in a colander to drain.

    8. Add just enough oil to coat the pasta and toss in the colander.

    9. Spread pasta out on sheetpans. About 4 pounds will fit on a pan.

    10. Repeat with remaining pasta.

    11. Rack the sheetpans and cool in the walkin.

    12. Store, covered, for use in another recipe.
