Hi, I'm italian and I love cooking. Some little advices :
1) before cooking pasta, prepare the sauce
2) never, never, never put pasta under the water after cooking! No "serious" restaurant do this!
3) In summer I make always fresh tomato sauce as it's explained here: and I never use Ajwain nor Garlic Powder nor Italian Seasoning

Try if you like :)
