How to Cook Perfect Pasta

Cooking fresh-filled Giovanni Rana pasta to perfection is easy. Here, Antonella reveals Mr Rana’s expert tips to ensure flawless results every time.

1. Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Don’t be shy about adding salt – go for two to three generous pinches.

2. Delicately add the pasta and, making sure it is fully submerged, cook according to package instructions.

3. Using a ragno (spider-shaped colander), drain the pasta but reserve a little cooking water in the pot.
    Transfer the pasta to a warm dish and toss with the sauce to ensure it fully absorbs all the delicious flavor.

4. Add a final splash of cooking water to loosen the pasta and help it mix evenly with the sauce.

5. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle your garnish and serve immediately.

Buon appetito!
