義大利人教你煮義大利麵 / How to cook pasta!

During my London life I’ve seen things that no Italian could have ever thought possible. So that’s why I am writing a post about how to cook pasta: I feel like it’s a moral duty for me.

自從來到倫敦後已經看過太多義大利人沒辦法正確的煮義大利麵,基於良心譴責所以決定要寫這篇煮義大利麵指南。

Amici, se siete italiani presumo che la pasta la sappiate già cucinare, quindi questa volta non traduco. Vi prego non deludetemi.

1) Put ¾ water in a pot. bring to boiling. To make it faster, use the boiler.
1) 將水加入鍋內至3/4滿,並將水煮滾。

2) When water is boiling put salt and then add the spaghetti. Not water AND spaghetti and then boil. Follow the rule.
2)待水煮滾後加鹽,再加入義大利麵,記的千萬要在水煮滾後才能下麵。

Push the spaghetti inside the pot, don’t leave them partially out otherwise they won’t cook uniformly.
待麵煮軟後將義大利麵完全浸泡在熱水裡。

4) For how long? Do you want to know the truth darling? 7-8 minutes for most types of pasta is enough. Don’t ever follow instructions on pasta sold for the British market. Pasta must be al dente. Not just because you’re posh or hipster (and this could be enough already), but also because it’s good for your health. Put a timer or you’ll forget. Every brand and format has got its own best cooking point, so experiment with that.

4)該煮多久呢? 基本上7至8分鐘對大部分種類的義大利麵已經足夠了,別再相信那些賣給英國人的義大利麵料理書了,煮完之後的義大利麵必須有嚼勁跟彈牙才對,而且經研究證實對身體負擔也較小哦,儘管如此,不同品牌與種類的義大利麵都有最佳烹煮方式,建議大家都可以嘗試看看。

5) Last but not least: don’t cook pasta and leave it there (especially in its hot water). Rinse it and add its sauce straight away. If you can’t immediately add the sauce at least add a bit of olive oil and mix. But don’t leave it there alone for more than 10 minutes. Basically treat your pasta like you would treat your woman 😉

5)煮好的義大利麵要直接瀝乾並直接淋上醬汁,不可浸泡在熱水裡,如果不能馬上淋上醬汁話也最好淋上橄欖油攪拌,記得千萬不能放超過10分鐘,對待義大利麵就要像對待妳的女朋友或老婆一樣。
