Pre-cooking pasta?

galleygirl | Oct 13, 2005 04:18 PM

I know some restaurants precook pasta, then dunk it in hot water for a minute or so when the order comes up.

What's the best way to do this? To rinse (which I usually don't do with Italian pasta) or not to rinse?

To oil, or not to oil?

How to store, best way to refresh?

I have time to experiment, but I figure there's a generally accepted method, and someone here either does it, or has worked in a kitchen that does...Thanks!
