I have noticed that when cooking with DO's most cooks prefer to add dry pasta and warm water. But what if I want to use more pasta or less pasta then the recipe calls for? If I have a recipe that calls for half a pound of spaghetti pasta and 3 cups water what would the ratio be if I wanted to use a full pound of pasta? Would it then be 6 cups of water?

What if I'm using a different pasta? Would the water ratio be different?

I don't want to make my pasta dishes soupy if you follow me.

Or am I over thinking this?

I usually make my pasta at home, then add after it at camp, but I like to think of DO cooking as a science experiment.

I would add maybe 1-1/2 times the normal amount called for then either add more if necessary or take the lid off to let it evaporate.

It's a great excuse to keep tasting while cooking :Smile 1:

Others who have cooked the pasta at camp may have better ideas.
