Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Kitchen Quick Tips - Cooking Pasta

kitchen quick tips

Pasta should be cooked to al dente meaning with bite so there is a bit of resistance when bit.  Unless the pasta is being used for a cold salad, do not rinse it.  The residual starch helps to keep the sauce from slipping off of the pasta.
