Cooking Tips:
To cook fresh pasta you need a large stock pot (or pasta pot). Fill it with water salted with sea salt. Add the pasta and allow it to boil quickly in the water - this will keep it turning and prevent it from sticking. Fresh pasta will take 2 - 3 minutes to cook. The cooked pasta should still be firm but not mushy or hard on the inside.
