When adding pasta to homemade soup do you recommend cooking the pasta first?
I like to cook my pasta in a separate pot; then drain the pasta and add it to your soup. The soup is less starchy.
I usually cook pasta separate and then mix it. However, if pasta is in very small amount then I add it soup pot.
Yes I do recommend cooking the pasta first when making your soup. You can set the pasta to the side until you have simmered your other ingredients and then add the pasta in at the last minute.
I usually cook the noodles until they are mostly done then mix it in with the soup and cook it fully.
When making soup with pasta, I treat it like making rice. Get your soup the way you want it, then add your pasta cover the pot and let it simmer on low for about 20 minutes. The pasta will be done and you won't have an extra pot to clean.
I find that it really depends on the type of soup, if you want a more clear broth consistency, cook first and drain before adding to soup (per pasta directions). But if you want a heartier soup where the pasta is softer rather than al dente, and the broth you want is thicker then you can add directly to the soup to cook (the starch from the pasta will cloud the broth a little bit).
Yes...everytime otherwise the starch from the pasta interfers with the flavor of the dish.
pre-cook the pasta and drain straight away then refill with cold water, this will soak up any excess starch give it a stir and then seive, leave aside untill 5-7 minutes before serving then mix together ,cook and serve.
My grandma taught me that noodles in soup will spoil the pot. What she meant was that cooking noodles in soup will add starch into the water and if not eaten immediately the soup begins to "sour" after a few days. The best thing to do is make the noodles on the side and add them to the individual serving bowls with the soup ladled over it. Store the noodles and soup in separate containers in the fridge for tasty leftovers.
I grew up with cooking them seperatley, there is no right or wrong way to prepare it though.
Yes - you do want to cook the noodles to "al dente" first - otherwise if you cook them in the soup base they will soak up all the broth and become to soft and you will have to keep adding more broth- always add the pasta starch ie: noodles, rice etc in the last few minutes of cooking the soup-

Can anyone recommend a good pasta maker? I really want to make my own pasta!I've seen some really expensive and really cheap pasta makers so I don't know how to choose! I'm just looking for the manual roller type of pasta maker, nothing electric.

What's a good substitute (if there are any) for noodles in a pasta dish?Just curious if anyone found any "healthy" options when it comes to making pasta....noodles are unarguably the best part, but once in a while I run into someone who is avoiding carbs when I am trying to prep a meal.

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?
