    Samuel Holden's Note:

    Quick, easy, tasty, perfect after a long day of work (whatever you do). Cooking pasta in this way is someone elses idea and I can't remember who's...Please tell me...someone! :( Test the pasta occasionally and drain it when it's at your preferd "hardness" or "softness", I refuse to eat anything that is not al-dente, but in spain they serve it all mushy (ick!).

      Found her!!! it was chef Tara that posted on the BB about this method of cooking pasta, ir really does work... It depends on the pasta you are cooking, keep an eye on it, it will take between 10 and 20 minutes for your pasta to be al dente... she is chef number 12118, named Tara :)) thanks tara!

      I made this with raddiatore pasta, no olive oil, lots of butter, and this could become my new comfort food!

      This was very delicious and easy. My daughter, who is starting to like pastas with veggies, enjoyed this. I really loved the fresh basil in the dish. Roxygirl in Colo.
