Why is important to boil noodles in salty water?


I've always been told to boil noodles in the "water of the sea" but I don't know why. Is it an old-wives tale or is there some truth to it?

    Pasta, or if you prefer, noodles, are not bland if cooked in unsalted water as the common practice is to then put them into pasta sauce to finnish so that it can coat it.
