To Margaret 3.. from Thelma Louise This was a really great idea. It worked perfectly. Thanks so much. I live in Florida and we sure don't need any more humidity put in the house. This saves a lot. I will pass this on to others. Thanks again

Tried this for my spaghetti dinner tonight. Wow, I don't have to worry about the pasta boiling over and then trying to clean off my glass stove top. Thanks for posting.

What a great idea! I tried it twice. First with elbow macaroni and then with tiny shells which took less time to cook than 15 minutes about 7-8 minutes. I did add a little oil and salt to my water before adding the pasta and everything worked out fine. Sure will be nice to free up a burner on busy occations. Thank you.

Wonderful cooking method. Works everytime! Have been using this recipe for several years and have not thought about rating it until I made it again today, using egg noodles, to go with Awesome Baked Pork Chops. I love that you can just set the timer after you add the pasta, forget about it, and have it come out perfect. Thanks, Margaret3, for posting
