Pasta, which is unique to Italian cuisine, was first produced in 1154. Sicilyappeared in . It is made from dry dough in various shapes prepared by mixing eggs with flour obtained from wheat.

Nobel prize winner in physics for his discovery of the interaction of disorder and fluctuations in physical systems from atomic scale to planetary scale in 2021. Dr. Giorgio Parisi’s pasta cooking advice sparked controversy.


Parisi suggests turning off the stove midway through the cooking process, then closing the lid of the pot and waiting for the heat in the water to do the rest.

In this way, he says, the cost of cooking pasta can be reduced.

First, cook the pasta for the time on the package. If you overcook your pasta will be mushy. If you like it slightly firm, cook 1.5 minutes less than the cooking time.

If you are going to combine the pasta with the sauce immediately, do not put it in cold water.

If you are making pasta with tomato paste, do not add oil to the boiling water of the pasta. You will already add oil to the tomato paste sauce.

If you want to get a more delicious sauce, use both tomato and pepper paste.

You can enhance the taste of tomato paste with spices such as cumin, black pepper, thyme, red pepper (hot or sweet).

You can grate optional parmesan cheese while serving.

After the water boils, pour the pasta into the pot. Leave the lid of the pot open.

Reserve a glass of boiling water for the sauce.

Then drain the pasta water.

Put olive oil in a pan or a separate pot.

Add the chopped garlic, then add the tomato paste and spices and stir-fry.
