Macaroni is much like cooking spaghetti. Most packets come with instructions on how to make them as manufacturers differ. However, here is a general way of preparing them.
- Put boiling water in a pot. Add salt (1 tsp) and oil (2 tbsp), close pot and brings this water to the boil.
- When water is boiling, add your macaroni elbows (500g), stir occasionally for about 8 minutes or until done (tender) then drain using a colander or partly close the pot and drain the water out.
- Rinse with cold water to prevent the pasta from cooking and removing excess starch. Return macaroni to pot, add margarine/butter (2 tbsp) and allow to melt. Your macaroni is ready.
