NOTE: Cooking Pasta ‘Al dente’ simply means, cooking it until it’s still firm, and not soft. Typically, if you would normally cook Pasta for 9 to 11 minutes, you might only cook it 7 – 8 minutes or less for Al dente. Check the directions on the package, and follow suggested times for Al dente, or ‘Firm’ pasta.
