You need to buy rock sea salt possibly harvested from the Mediterranean sea. PASTA SECRET #3: PASTA BUT ONLY THE RIGHT ONE! Pasta of course must need to be made only with 100% Durum Semolina but that is not enough. The serious pasta lover distinguishes pasta from pasta. Buy only imported Italian pasta and make sure it is made in Italy (the pasta package could say "Imported from Italy" but actually made somewhere else). Do not trust huge companies like Barilla that actually make their pasta locally. Their quality is not the same. Also do not trust a packaged pasta just because it has an Italian name. Check that the package reads "Made in Italy". Use the best pasta available. I recommend you look for Italian favourites like De Cecco or Voiello that you can find at your local grocery store or supermarket.
De Cecco is probably one of the best pasta you can buy abroad. High-quality pasta has a golden color with a vaguely translucent appearance.

Once it is all submerged stir it as soon as possible with a wooden fork or spoon.

Do you want pasta that is made from semolina ordinary flour or gluten free such as corn or rice pasta? Do you want squid ink pasta spinach pasta or tomato pasta or just plain pasta? The more you learn about pasta the more there is to know and the more bewildered you can get. The best quality pasta is made from semolina (hard durum wheat) and eggs with maybe a little salt and some olive oil thrown in.
