Best Meatball Recipe

Common mistakes that ruin Italian food

3- Cook the pasta in water with oil.

In Spain it is very common squirt of olive oil to the water in which the pasta is cooked, a custom which, according aimed at the Academia Barilla, adds nothing to the dishes. In his opinion, the oil should be added after draining the pasta.
