comment When you cook spaghetti, do you add olive oil to the boiling water?
I agree with Lorenzo: washing the pasta is a good way to stop over-foaming; however I disagree with him/her in that the oil will not do anything strange, at least in the sense that it will be harmful to the pasta. A little (cheap vegetable) oil will help prevent over-foaming. The oil sits on top of the water and rarely comes into contact with the pasta long enough for the pasta to absorb it.
