Pasta is made from durum wheat flour called semolina and comes in hundreds of different sizes, shapes and colors. Cook pasta in rapidly boiling water to "al dente", meaning the pasta is slightly firm when chewed. Overcooked pasta is soft from having absorbed too much of the cooking water and will break apart easily when stirred into a casserole.
