Salted Water - how much salt is absored by the pasta ?

I've seen references to salt in water does not add sodium to your food (usually accompanied by a disclaimer - if you are on a sodium restricted diet, check with your doctor) (Huh!) Mine is a serious question. While I want to minimize the use of salt in my diet, I'd like to know (a) how much salt is absorbed when I cook pasta or vegetables in salted water - say 1 teaspoon to a large pot of water for pasta? (b) my second question - would I get less salt albeit also less tasty pasta if I salted it at the table?
