pouring sauce over cooked rigatoni

pour homemade sauce over cooked rigatoni. Pasta tip: Make sure when cooking your rigatoni that you don’t over cook it. I generally cook my pasta for 1 minute less than the package recommends, but also check it before that by carefully pulling a pasta out of the boiling water and testing it’s doneness with a fork or biting into it to see it it’s al dente. This way you don’t get a pasta that is overcooked.
