Q: Why is it recommended to put in salt to the water when cooking pasta?
A:Tradition is the reason for it, above all. It is typically deemed that pasta will cook faster as salt boosts the temperature at which water boils. When you look at it from a chemistry viewpoint, this is true. But if you add 1 tablespoon of salt (beyond recommended) to 5 quarts of water, you just boost the water’s boiling point by 7/100th of 1 degree. This is not enough to shorten the cooking time.
