The Italians love pasta. Pasta is served as a second or third course, served between starter or middle, and the main course. Pasta should not be served with a main meat dish such as bone meat or steaks of meat, and if served with a sauce, only a light serving of sauce should be used, so not to drown the pasta and its flavour. To cook pasta fill a large pot three quarts full of boiling water, keep it on a high heat and pour the pasta in, season the water with salt to taste and cook in the water till Al Dente (9-12 minutes), keep on trying the pasta through out cooking until satisfyed with its texture, it should not be too hard and firm, but it shouldn't be soft and mushy.  Here are some of the best pasta recipies there are, I hope you enjoy, and don't forget, with sauces and pastas you can experiment, maybe add a little more or less of something, or try different pastas to see which one suits you the best.
