  Macaroni 6 Ounce
  Salt 2 Teaspoon
  Boiling water 2 Quart

Break macaroni into 1 1/2" pieces.
Add the salt to the boiling water, then add the macaroni gradually, taking care that the boiling does not stop.
Cook the macaroni, uncovered, stirring frequently with a fork, until a piece of the macaroni rubbed between the fingers is tender— the time varies with the macaroni—5-20 min.
Avoid overcooking, especially if the macaroni is to be added to a sauce.
Drain, rinse with boiling water, and use as indicated in individual recipe.
Or if to be served as a vegetable, add 3 tablesp melted butter or margarine, and a dash of pepper.
