While the casserole is cooking you can prepare a salad or any other dish to go with it. The frozen casserole will generally take about an hour to cook when placed in a cold oven. DO NOT PLACE A FROZEN CASSEROLE IN A HOT OVEN! If it is ceramic or glass it will most likely break and even if it isn t the top portion and sides of the casserole will cook before the inside is heated through and become dried out. When cooking pasta use a large pot with at least 3-4 quarts of salted water (depending on how much pasta is to be cooked). The water should be brought to a full boil before adding the pasta. One to two tablespoons of salt should be added to the water. This will not only help to add flavor to the pasta but will increase the heat of the water allowing the pasta to cook at a faster rate.
If there is still a slight resistance then the pasta is done. It is as the Italians say al dente. There is some "bite" left in it. Your pasta is then ready to serve with the sauce of your choice. When you are almost done cooking dinner you turn the macaroni off to add the cheese sauce to it and notice that the pasta is too gummy. Do you make another batch of pasta or do you go without the pasta? You probably don t have time to make another batch of pasta so your meal will not be complete this time. Cooking pasta does take some special attention in order to avoid any gummy or pasty pasta dinners. When cooking pasta put your water on the stove and bring to a boil. Salt your boiling water right before you add your pasta. As soon as you add your pasta stir immediately.
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.
