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.
This really does work! I used this with with 8 ounces dry rotini and it came out PERFECT! Margaret u have no idea how much you've simplified my cooking like! THANK U!
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. *^-^*
WOW...with the heat index at 115 degrees here yesterday, I used the NEW method. Worked great on bow tie pasta!! I will never boil pasta the old way again!!! Thank you for posting!!! Amy
THANK YOU for a wonderful idea. Works great!
Wow is this ever easy - and it works to!! I found that the 15 minutes was perfect for spaghetti but I had to leave me penne pasta in for about 4 minutes longer. I also added a bit of olive oil to the water so that the pasta wouldn't stick together. This is a great idea - thank's for sharing!!
Your right...my pasta came out PERFECT! It was so nice not having all of that rolling steam in the kitchen on this hot summer day! Thanks for the GREAT tip!
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.
