Tried it for dinner tonight and the first thing I noticed is the pasta sticking to the pan as I'm trying to pour it out into the strainer. With bottled water, the pasta comes out of the pan easy and never sticks.

depends on the tap water. Our area never has a problem.

I've never cooked with anything but tap water here. Never even considered it.

I have never used anything other than tap water for cooking pasta. Drain it immediately, add sauce and stir. Never had a sticking problem.

Cooking with bottled water seems like something that would be illegal in CA.

You added some salt when you added your pasta to the boiling water right ?? I have never cooked with bottled water... That's an interesting thought.

The trend of cooking with bottled water most likely started in CA.

And they consider it environmentally acceptable because they place the empty plastic water bottles curbside for recycling. grin

If you have weird or bad tasting water you dont need to go all the way to bottled.

use brita or similar home filters will solve the issue without the inefficiencies of bottled water.

heck even the flint folks were getting by with certain higher end certidied filters for awhile.

I use Brita water for my ice trays. Our tap water isn't terrible, but it does not have an appealing taste.

Put a dash of cooking oil in while cooking pasta, and it won't stick together.

No more comment than that, as I've never cooked with your area's tap water.

I added salt to it, but that was before the water started boiling. Maybe I need to wait until it starts boiling.
