Margaret3...irrespective of how many other folk knew of this method...thank YOU sincerely for posting it here for those of us who have never heard of this ingenious approach. Over the last few days I have been finding the heat nearly unbearable and not having to stand in front of a dementedly boiling pot of pasta was truly a wee slice of heaven. Bless you.

It Works! I used this method to cook wide egg noodles tonight. I have to admit I was pleasently surprised, having been just as skeptical as others who tried it. You might have to tweak the time a little bit depending on pasta size and altitude, but it will be well worth the convience. It was 112°F today in Phoenix, but not in my kitchen. *^-^*

What a great cooking method! I have tried this method a couple of times now with great success. How nice to not have to worry about your pasta water boiling over while you are busy preparing the sauce. If you follow the directions exactly, your pasta will come out perfect.

This is great! I've always cooked hardboiled eggs this way. (less "bouncing around" and fewer "cracked eggs") Now I'll have to try this method with rice. Many thanks!

Another convert here, and being from South Florida, it's the only way I will make pasta again. I made linguine and it was perfectly cooked.
