How to Fix Undercooked Pasta?

Uh-oh! Did your pasta turn out undercooked? Don't worry, we've got you covered with some easy solutions.

First, drain the undercooked pasta, but don't rinse it. This will help preserve the starch on the surface, which aids in absorbing moisture.

Return the pasta to a pot of boiling water and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes. Keep a close eye on it to prevent overcooking.

If boiling isn't an option, you can try steaming the pasta by placing it in a colander over a pot of simmering water. Cover and steam for a few minutes until it reaches the desired texture.

Another method is to briefly microwave the pasta with a small amount of water. Start with 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until it reaches the desired doneness.

Remember to taste test along the way to ensure you achieve the perfect texture. Once it's cooked to your liking, drain the pasta and serve it with your favorite sauce.
