Helpful Tip of the Day – July 31, 2012 – Overcooking Pasta
Helpful tip of the day:
When you overcook pasta it becomes mushy and starchier! Pasta is made of complex carbs but the longer it cooks, it transforms into simple carbs, increases in glycemic index and raises your blood sugar! no bueno…
Taste to test…. Pasta should be ‘al dente’ – firm, yet tender, with a tiny core in the middle and remember pasta will continue to cook and absorb liquid so remove from the pot immediately!
