Do you add a little oil to the water when you boil your pasta so that it will not stick together?
ofcourse you should .. to not stick and also to be soft so it would tast better ..
No, it's a waste of oil. Pasta won't stick together if you use a large enough pot in which to boil it.
It depends. Sometimes I forget. To be honest I do not see a difference.
I don't know why somebody would vote down someone else's answer, that is not nice.
Yes. I always add a bit of olive oil so it doesn't stick. It works well:) Some people think it is a waste of oil, I don't know, maybe it is, but I put some in just in case. What can it hurt?
I always do, especially with the smaller pastas. I also learned the hard way that the water should be a rolling boil before adding pasta.
Yes, I do add oil to help keep the pasta from clumping together.
I will share another tip, too: I also wipe the top inside of the pot, about an inch-wide band, with oil. This pretty much prevents the pasta from boiling over. Since oil and water don't mix, the oil keeps the boilng water from "climbing" over the edge of the pot.
