If you cook pasta on the stove, you need to calculate that for 100 grams of product you will need 1 liter of water. First, you need to put water on the fire, add salt and wait until it boils. Only then place the pasta in the water, turn down the heat to moderate, and stir periodically, so that they do not stick together.
