Pasta Cooking Equipment

The basic cooking method most often used for cooking pasta is boiling. There are a few other methods used to cook specific types of pasta and Asian noodles. The other methods used are baking, deep-frying, and stir-frying. Pasta cooking can be accomplished with a minimal amount of equipment. The only pieces of equipment that are necessary are a large pot, a large spoon, and a colander.

When cooking large amounts of pasta or long strands of pasta, it is beneficial to use a perforated insert and a stock pot large enough to hold the insert. This allows enough room for proper boiling of the pasta and adds convenience in the draining process. Using a perforated insert eliminates having to pour the hot pasta and water into a colander to drain.
 

Some other pieces of equipment that may be useful when cooking different types of pasta are a wooden fork, a spaghetti spoon, a slotted spoon, a straining spoon, measuring cups, a wooden spatula, a wok, and a baking dish for baked pasta dishes.
