Boiled Macaroni (Plain)

Put two cups of macaroni, broken into inch lengths, into a saucepan, cover with plenty of boiling water, salted, and boil till tender, or about thirty minutes. Stir gently once or twice, to prevent sticking to the bottom. Add enough cold water to stop boiling and let it come to a boil again. Drain in a colander. Boiled macaroni may be served with a gravy or fruit sauce.
