If you do not wish to prepare the sauce, you may just add the marinara sauce or any sauce of your choice and may add your favorite cheese for pasta as you like, once you have cooked the pasta.
In any case if there is any little liquid content left on the pot once the pasta is cooked, you can add an extra tablespoon of olive oil, give a gentle stir and keep it aside for another few minutes and the liquid content should be absorbed as the pasta cools down, while each pasta shell will still remain intact and not getting mushy or overcooked.
If you want a more firm texture to make pasta salads, you may reduce the amount of water slightly.
Make sure to add the sauce and cheese only after the pasta is cooked while following this method, as mentioned in the recipe.
