How to Cook
Bring about 7 qt (1½ gal, lt 6.6) of water to a boil in a large pot. Add
the salt and pasta to the boiling water. Cook until al dente, 6 to 8
minutes. Drain and toss the pasta with the desired sauce.
Which Pasta Sauce?
Homemade pasta without eggs are best with meat, beans or seafood sauces, in general they match best with chunky sauces. I decided to go for a fresh Tomato Pasta Sauce, even if the tradition calls for orecchiette with broccoli rabe.
