Specifically well salted boiling water. How much water depends on how much pasta you are cooking. Plenty of water is best but even if you are limited to a small pan do not fret all your pasta needs is salted boiling water. In a perfect world a large oversized pot would be best. But if you are cooking lets say a pound of pasta for a group to enjoy even an eight cup/two quart pan will do just fine. Yes eight cups or two quarts of water will do the trick for a pound of pasta. Bring the water to the highest boil you can and leave it at that temperature. Add enough salt (I recommend sea salt for both flavor and mineral content) so that you can just taste it in the water. Too much salt is as bad as too little salt. Once the water is boiling fiercely add the pasta and stir it briskly in the pan until it comes to a boil once again. Here is an old professional pasta cooking trick for when you are cooking any type of spaghetti or long pasta. Break the pasta in half before dropping it into the pan. Not only will it fit perfectly but it will cook evenly. You are not waiting for the pasta to cook and bend itself into the pan which can take over a minute. Your pasta will have the same perfect Al Dente (firm slightly hard slightly crunchy) texture all the way through. In addition it is Much Easier to eat. It also takes on sauces much better than foot long plus pasta. Most pasta packages recommend that you cook the pasta for a certain number of minutes.
Carbohydrates though recently made out to be villains are actually necessary to keep your body and mind running smoothly. When carbohydrates are broken down they provide a major source of glucose. Glucose is the primary source of energy for your body and the only source of energy for your brain. Many people who have tried to stick to very low-carb diets have suffered from low energy and bad moods. I know I would be in a bad mood if I never got to eat my favorite pastas! Consuming too many carbohydrates can be fattening but pasta itself is not fattening; cooked pasta has only about 200 calories per cup. Where you really get into trouble is with your pasta sauce. Pasta sauces that contain high calorie fatty meats creams cheese and other fattening ingredients can really make a pasta dish fattening.
