20. Boil pasta. Drain it before it's fully cooked, since it will finish cooking when you reheat it. Drizzle the pasta with a teaspoon or two of olive oil and toss, then transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate up to five days. To reheat, place whatever sauce you are using in a large sauté pan with high sides, heat the sauce, add the pasta and stir until hot.
