Ditto what jennyema and Alix said. It really depends on how thick it is and how much you dry it. Generally - 1-3 minutes. The only way to be sure is to grab a piece and bite into it ... the bad thing is that if it's perfectly the way you want to serve it, you should have removed it 30-45 seconds earlier since it continues to cook from residual heat after it's removed from the water.

I definately cooked it too long...will do better next time.
It was still good, though...tasted better last night. Of course the Alfredo Sauce with shrimp and crabmeat didn't hurt things any.

We get by with a little help from our friends
