Notes:
1.     Serve hot as it tends to become sticky and hard once it cools down.
2.     If you are new to cooking pasta you may not know whether it is cooked right. Take a piece of it and chew to check, must not feel  floury, but must be soft cooked specially in the center part of the piece. Most brands of pasta firm up a bit once they are seasoned .
