Pasta Hack: How to Prep a Week's Worth in Less Than 30 Minutes! by Chef Gigi Gaggero
Pasta. Kids love it, but that big pot every few days is such a hassle! Cook enough pasta for the whole week at one time. Here’s how!
- Boil a gallon of water for each pound of pasta in a large pot. Add 1/2 tablespoon salt per gallon.
- Bring the water to a full boil over high heat. Add the pasta. Stir.
- Cook the pasta for 5 to 8 minutes after water returns to a boil. Pasta should still be firm to the bite. DO NOT OVERCOOK!
- Drain from water. Toss pasta with enough olive oil to lightly coat and keep the pasta starch from sticking.
- Portion control servings in airtight containers. Use one container for each pasta dish you have planned midweek. Store in the fridge.
Reheat the pasta, add toppings and dinner is ready!
