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.
I decided to try this method a few times with different kinds of pasta before writing a review. First time I used spaghetti noodles and they came out perfect. I was shocked! Second time, linguine noodles. These stuck together resulting in some uncooked parts. Third time, used pasta shells which came out perfect. In conclusion, I think this is a very solid recipe, but if you plan to use long noodles, make sure to stir them well before covering them. I think that's the only reason why my linguine noodles didn't turn out so well since I did stir the spaghetti and not the linguine, and should be listed as a step in the recipe itself.
This worked fantastically!
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.
20 minutes is perfect for whole grain pasta and hard boiled eggs!!! Been doing it this way for YEARS now!!!
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
