Awesome! This is the only way I'll make pasta now! As I generally use chunky whole wheat or whole grain pasta, I let it sit for 20 minutes rather than 15, and it worked out perfect. Not only did it not require watching, stirring or steam up the kitchen, the pot didn't need any scrubbing, either! Thank you SO much for posting this gem!
It was really hot the other day and the air conditioning was doing its best so I thought I would give it a break and make my pasta this way. I used a whole wheat fortified rotini and this worked great. I forgot and left it on the burner just turned it off and it still worked out great. I will do this from now on. Thanks.
This was such a neat idea and worked very well. I'll be using this method often for cooking pasta. Thanks!
OUTSTANDING! THANK YOU for this technique. I'm always forgetting the pasta boiling away at the back of the stove and it's ends up way overdone. With this method it was perfect!
Wonderful method. My pasta turned out perfect. I will be using this method from now on. Thanks for sharing.
I have been using this for over a year now and it works for every pasta I've ever tried, whole wheat included. It also frees up a burner which could be great! I do stir my pasta when I pour it in just to try to avoid any sticking on the bottom.
Will do it this way from now on! Thank you!
Yay! It is perfect---and so easy!
I saw this on here one day and thought I'd try it. I like the fact you don't have to keep stirring it. I used penne pasta and agree with Ransomed by Fire -- next time (and this will be the only way I cook pasta anymore) I'll try it for 10 minutes. Mine was a little more cooked than we like it. All in all, I love this idea!
Works great! Thank you!
