Cooking enthusiast Ereka Vetrini, also known as @ereksafood, took to TikTok to share a tried and tested method for cooking pasta perfectly.
Al dente, meaning “to the tooth” is a particular way of cooking pasta.
The result is tender but also firm and chewy to taste.
Italy Magazine stated: “To be truly Italian, al dente – literally meaning ‘to the tooth’, or with a bit of bite – is the only way to go.”
Ereka told her fellow pasta lovers: “I just discovered the most amazing pasta hack.”

@cassbroderick added: “I tried this…IT’S AMAZING.”
