 Method:

 Take plenty of water in a pot and bring it to rolling boil .

Add pasta to the boiling water with a little salt.Keep stirring it to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.

Cook pasta till tender.You can check if it is correctly cooked by tasting it. It should be tender yet firm.

Now drain the cooked pasta into a colander and run cold water through the pasta for about 10 secs. Keep it aside.
