The Golden Rule of Making Pasta
When cooking pasta, you should only rinse it after cooking if it is going to be used in a cold pasta dish, like a pasta salad, or when you are not going to sauce and serve it immediately. When you rinse the pasta, you lose some of the nutrients. But if you are saving it for later, rinsing under cold water will stop the cooking process and keep it from becoming soggy.
