by cooking pasta
Choose a large pot, pour a sufficient amount of water inside, but not too much. This will save you time to boil it. Cover the pot with a lid to reduce cooking times.
Avoid preheating the oven. Do not open it frequently during cooking and turn it off a few minutes before the end: you will make the most of the heat generated.
Read on the package the recommended times for a correct cooking of the pasta. Longer times would mean unnecessary waste of gas or electricity.
To cut or chop vegetables, or grate cheese, use non-electric tools. You will thus save energy and be more eco-sustainable.
Add salt only when the water begins to boil. Salt, in fact, tends to slow down the heating process and therefore the boiling of liquids.
Do not throw away the pasta you don’t eat. The leftovers from the day before can turn into a delicious flan or a fantastic timbale.
Turn off the heat halfway through cooking. Covering the still boiling water with a lid, the pasta will continue to cook even when the heat is off.
