It depends on the pasta. If I get fresh tortellini from the deli, they take about two-three minutes. Fine spaghetti takes less. What sort have you got?

Nice fresh pasta, 40-60 seconds in boiling water, then strait in the pan with your sauce for a further 2 minutes, toss don't stir. Good pasta 1.8mm-2mm thick...
