  Posted on   by   No comments

cooking_pastaAl dente is an Italian term which describes the consistency of pasta cooked to a tender firmness. It literally means “to the tooth.”

Pasta al dente is considered to be pasta cooked “just right,” when it is slightly resistant as you bite into it, but not soft or overdone. Hence, “just right.”
