Gordon Ramsay reveals the simple trick to cooking perfect, delicious pasta
This is how it's done according to Ramsay...
Along with almost everyone else in the world, we have one major issue when it comes to cooking pasta.
We either don't put on enough of it, or we put on enough pasta to feed a family of six for two weeks.
But the actual act of cooking pasta is so easy, even the dumb friend in your group can manage it (if one person didn't immediately spring to mind here, you're probably the dumb one).
You boil salted water, throw your in your pasta and cook until it's al dente.
But, according to chef Gordon Ramsay, who we presume knows a thing or two about cooking pasta, we've all been doing it wrong.
Firstly, you season cold water with salt and olive oil and bring the pan to a rolling boil. A nice large pan is essential to ensure it all has sufficient room to cook evenly.
The olive oil is to stop the pasta from sticking together.
He recommends adding the pasta and then turning it in the pot as soon as it starts to "melt".
Cook the pasta and when you think it's done, test it by picking out a strand and tasting it.

Drain your pasta and season it with one tablespoon of olive oil, salt, and freshly cracked black pepper.
This is the secret to making perfect pasta according to the world-renowned chef.
