Most of the time I always forget to salt other foods when they are cooking, but never the pasta. I am not a big salt user. And I can't have pepper. I use the sea salt McCormack table salt grinder mostly. I keep a salt cellar next to the stove and never remember to use it.

I think it all depends on our salt love. Some of us just have to have more and others less salt. a matter of taste

Love the salt jar! I am not a salt lover, so most of my food needs salt when it's served. I started cutting back on salt in my cooking because DH is one of those people who shakes salt all over his plate before he starts eating. So I lightly salt when cooking and let him add his own salt.

Years ago I used the pepper shaker as the salt shaker to control how much salt the family used on their plated food. Smaller holes and they never noticed the difference.

Pasta with Butter cook pasta to al dente stage or the way you like it.be sure to salt the water. While pasta is cooking get out a large skillet one that will hold all the pasta. Save some of the cooking water in case you need it later. now add the pasta to the skillet along with melted butter 1 stick, 1 cup of heavy cream, salt and pepper,1/2 cup of parm cheese reserving the rest of the 3/4 cup of cheese til after you've tossed the pasta the if needed add the reserved water and finish up with the last of the cheese.. enjoy, kades 3 stars 1 reviews
