You can read the side of the box, but here’s my take.

Bring 4-6 quarts of water to a roiling boil. Even if you’re only doing 1 serving, still boil a couple of quarts. The pasta needs room to move or it will clump and/or boil over. Better safe than clumpy.
Salt to taste if desired. You desire. Believe me, you desire. This is your only window to seasoned pasta and if you slam it shut, it’s gone forever. You want to add about 1 tsp per pint of water, or until it tastes like sea water. Yes, I taste it. A word about Salt.
Add pasta to boiling water and stir gently.
Return to a boil and cook for the prescribed time on the package. For fresh pasta, it could be 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Just keep checking it.
Drain. Do not rinse.
Apply sauce o’ choice.
Serve.
