'Amazing' hack for cooking pasta the 'truly Italian' way – 'it's the only way to go'

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.”
