Also you may want to preserve a glassful of the cooking water to add to your sauce. That water will help form a perfect marriage between the pasta and the sauce. Again never ever drain your pasta too much. If you use a good pasta brand you do not need to eliminate any excessive starch on the contrary too much rinsing takes away the superb flavour of your pasta. Remember pasta water is not "dirty water". It is important to keep a little to maintain the strand moist. In this way you also need less sauce. PASTA SECRET #6: THE SAUCE I am not going to talk about the infinite variety of sauces you can prepare for your pasta but make sure you do not "over-sauce" pasta. Use just enough to cover the strands. In any case the right kind of pasta when cooked right is a veritable delight in itself.
Remember you can keep parboiled pasta refrigerated for up to six hours. You are saying but you cannot coat pasta with olive oil as the sauce will not adhere to the pasta. This is true but we are working with parboiled pasta not fully cooked so that rule does not apply. You have planned your dinner meal with recipes on pasta which will state to bring a large pot of salted water to boil before adding the parboiled pasta (the pasta has become soft while in the fridge it is fine). Now allow it to cook for about 2 minutes before draining with a colander. Serve as per instructions from recipes on pasta. I hope you take this tip from recipes on pasta to heart as it will save you time especially if you are cooking for a larger than normal function at home.
The good news is that Pasta has a GI of 41 which is similar to pears and lower than many types of bread. And one easy way to lower the GI of pasta is to cook it like the Italians - "al dente". Most pasta today is made from semolina flour obtained from durum wheat. This creates a firm dough which in turn also lowers the GI while also providing a good source of nutrition. Homemade and dried pasta contain plenty of B vitamins folic acid and iron. It s low in sodium and despite a prevalent myth pasta is not high in cholesterol even though it is usually made with eggs. It was once thought that egg consumption needed to be drastically reduced due to their high cholesterol content but subsequent research has shown eggs are quite healthy in moderation and greatly contribute to the health benefits of pasta.
