Pasta requires only a few things- space, boiling water, and salt. The most important thing when cooking pasta, though, is to cook it until al dente.
Most pasta packages list the recommended cooking time for getting al dente pasta. A good rule of thumb is to turn off the heat and strain it 1 to 2 minutes before the recommended time.

No matter what type of pasta dish you are cooking, a pasta with some structure will toss and be coated with creamy sauces better. If you have al dente pasta, it still has the ability to soak up the sauce and the flavors of the sauce, making the pasta dish even tastier.
