    As you add oil to prevent pasta from sticking you also prevent pasta from grab whatever sauce: oil makes pasta slippery and sauce goes away. If you know how to cook pasta, (pour it in boiling water and stir sometimes) you don't need oil in water.
    Also in most countries you can find poor quality pasta and that's why adding oil to water helps not to have it sticked, but this is just a remedy to handle up with what you can find.

    I put oil in the water and usually oil after and my sauce ALWAYS sticks to the pasta, as pasta is pretty absorbent. I prefer a little more than al dente. I of course taste, but I have cooked it so many times I pull a noodle apart and if it is a springy pull apart, it is perfect for me. 40+ years cook. Learned from the best, my mom who learned from the best, her mom and so on.

    As a very calm, non angry Italian, LoL! i respect Mr Ramsey's highly accomplished culinary skills, but, it has to be said, my late mamma e papa, never used oil, in the cooking water and nor have i and neither do i salt, or season the spaghetti, because the salza or your preferred sauce, is going to be sufficiently seasoned. It's all about bringing the water to the boil, then placing the spaghetti into the water as Mr Ramsey suggested, then bringing it back to the boil and finally, turning the heat down and simmering it, regularly stirring the spaghetti. The cooking times on the packaging are just guide lines, so you basically cook the spaghetti, to your own preference. Some prefer it very well done, whereas i prefer mine to be slightly al dente. All said and done though, it really is entirely up to the individual, as to how they prefer to cook their spaghetti, so Good Luck, folks! . xx

    And there I was hearing from all these super chefs "Don't put oil into the water, it does nothing at all, a waste of oil."
    But honestly I think it does work a little bit. My noodles don't stick together as bad and the sauce still sticks to them.
    Edit: Really. For me it works. I know that the oil only swims on the water surface, but the water is boiling and moving the oil. Maybe not enough to soak into the noodles, but I am not trying to soak them in oil, I am just trying to keep them from sticking to each other. I think it works because when you take out the noodles from the water, then the oil settles on the noodles and a fine film is on each noodle. Of course it should logically work better if you put the oil on them now after draining the noodles, but I actually found that that just destroys the noodles if you don't mix that carefully and in the end there is gonna be much more oil on them than if you had just put it into the water. I find that the fine oil film from the water is enough to keep the noodles from sticking while you eat and sometimes even longer than that. Putting on more oil after draining to me is too much oil.

    Come cuocere la pasta
    -far bollire l'acqua
    -aggiungere il sale
    -riportare ad ebollizione
    -inserire la pasta nella pentola
    -attendere che la pasta sia cotta
    -scolare e condire
    E' una cosa che una qualsiasi casalinga anche non di voghera sa fare PD
