Rinsing Pasta Never rinse pasta that you will be saucing and serving right away. Cooked pasta is covered with a thin layer of starch that helps the sauce cling to it. If you're making a salad, however, it's better to rinse this starch off to avoid gumminess when the pasta cools.
The acidity of the yogurt and the strong herbal qualities of the dill will pair well with a high-acid white wine such as a Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine from France. As an alternative, try a reasonably priced sparkling wine.
