An Italian phrase meaning ''to the tooth,'' which is used to describe the correct degree of doneness for pasta. It refers to pasta that is cooked firm and tender but never mushy. Pasta cooked al dente will hold up to any type of sauce that is used with it whereas pasta cooked too long may fall apart.
