It was a portion for myself. A handful I'd say not a fistful.
Since it was the first time I tried it I let it stand about 5 seconds and then poured off the water.
It didn't have a chance to absorb the water but the water sort of "flash cooked it".
It was cooked enough for me. A little al dente but I got more of the nutty flavor of the pasta.
Because this particular type of pasta is so thin, as you know, it works just fine.
