Similarly, how do you drain pasta with a colander?
Pour the pasta and remaining pasta water into the colander.
Slowly pour the pasta and pasta water into the colander. The water will drain out of the holes in the colander, leaving you with perfectly cooked pasta that’s ready to be mixed with some sauce. Don’t rinse the pasta after you drain it.
Is it OK to drain pasta in the sink?
Don’t let that liquid gold circle the drain again. Because pasta is made of flour, it releases starch into the cooking water as it boils, creating a white, cloudy liquid that we often deem “dirty” and then dump down the sink. …
A strainer is really a catchall name for any type of, well, strainer. It is usually fine mesh and bowl-shaped, good for rinsing a pint of berries or draining pasta. A colander is typically a larger bowl-shaped strainer, often with bigger holes (although that’s not always the case).
A colander has a wide bowl (often with two handles) and feet or a base that let it stand on its own in a sink while you pour a pot of pasta or boiled vegetables into it. … The bowl of a sieve can be rounded or cone shaped. Sieves are usually referred to as coarse- or fine-meshed.
If you only get one colander, get one that’s roughly the size of the pot in which you boil pasta or potatoes, so that you know that its contents will fit.
Plastic colanders can be damaged if set on a hot surface; some people also fear that some plastics might melt if too hot a boiling liquid such as oil is poured through them. Plastic ones can also stain. Ceramic ones often only have holes in the bottom. Metal ones will have a lip around the top rim.
