Pasta served with a sauce that has oregano is usually heavenly delicious! A simple and surefire way to boil pasta is to use a big pot, boil lots of water, add salt, put in the pasta and bring it back to a boil. Give the pasta a gentle stir while it boils so it does not stick together. You don’t want the pasta to sit around once it’s cooked. It will go soggy so be ready to serve up your pasta and sauce as soon as the pasta is cooked — more of like from pot to plate. It is important to first cook the sauce then later on boil the pasta.
What you’ll need:
300g shell pasta (boiled)
