2 Place the uncooked spaghetti into the boiling water. Be careful not to splash

3 Cook pasta for 8-12 minutes, depending on the directions on the box, and
your personal taste. The longer you cook the spaghetti, the softer the texture of

medium pot. You can stir the sauce into the pasta, or you can serve the sauce on
top of the pasta.
