Lower the heat to medium and add in the spaghetti and cooked until Al Dente (slightly undercooked; firm to bite and not soft). Depending on different brand use (and pasta use; this recipe call for spaghetti, but you can opt for linguine, capellini, etc), usually about 10 mins but do test the doneness at about 8 mins

When done, drain away the pasta water (save about 4 to 6 tablespoons of the water for later use) and set the pasta aside.
