Wow! That Pasta in a Rice Cooker is AWESOME. My first attempt using this method and am so impressed with the end result. Perfect pasta in twenty minutes - no mess no fuss - and no left overs. Will be making up packets of the hamburger and keep sauce on hand for those times when I need a good meal in a hurry. Now if only I had picked up a bottle of white wine to go with that lovely pasta! Thank you for recipe that is so a repeatable.

Thanks for sharing this recipe! EXCELLENT recipe for the rice cooker! very quick, easy pasta. I've made it so many times I couldn't even hazard a guess at the number. My DH has decided its one of his favorite recipes for me to play with. I have taken to substituting/adding pasta-friendly bits from the fridge in need of consumption. successful so far: cooked & shredded chicken, corned beef, shitake mushrooms, olives, pesto sauce instead of tomato sauce.

This is definitely a viable way to cook pasta. Pasta is pretty easy to begin with, but I guess if I didn't want to have to attend to boiling water, like wanted to give kids a bath while dinner made itself, it's good. Next time I will double the recipe and see if it still comes out yummy. If anything, it was too dry, but that could easily be remedied by adding more sauce at the end of cooking, like you do with normal pasta.

Excellent! I sauted chopped green peppers, onions and garlic then added the rest of the ingredients. Other than that, I followed the recipe to a tee - Perfect!

Not exactly gourmet but very quick and easy, and takes stuff you're likely to have on hand to make a meal that basically cooks itself. My husband said it tastes like Chef Boyardee (a compliment). I found the pasta was cooked perfectly and the sauce was good, I liked the way it coated every piece of pasta. I used macaroni and a soy version of ground "beef" since we are vegetarian. I also substituted half parmesan and half mozzarella for the romano cheese. I've also made it with old (sharp) cheddar, which is nice. I usually add about a cup of cheese. It always turns out really well. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Not exactly what I expected, and was very dissapointed. The tomatoe sauce was very strong and overpowering. It just tasted just like tomotoe sauce.
