I got nervous when I lifted the lid and saw the batch of angel hair grouped together. I thought they hadn't cooked properly or were sticky, but nope! They separated when the water was disturbed and had cooked perfectly. Thanks so much for posting this cooking method!
Update: I have since tried this method with pasta and I wouldn't go back to the old way again! Super easy, perfect every time!!!April 14/2009: This method could be applied when making soup. Once the soup is finished, I add the pasta and remove it from heat. It sits there (uncovered) and is cooked in about 10 minutes. Great idea!
Works perfectly! Thanks for this awesome way of cooking pasta!
This worked great with spaghetti. Thanks for sharing.
Great way to cook pasta. I was always looking for the packet to see how long to cook - now it doesn't matter with this method I can do each type for the same amount of time. It might not be quicker but it sure is simple and it works so well. Thanks Margaret.
Great trick!! Pasta came out perfect...I will definately be using this method from now on.
Wonderful. This worked great! It was so easy. Thanks for posting!
Great Tip! I made some Spaghetti last night using this method, and they turned out just perfect. I will always cook my pasta this way from now on. Thanks for posting this.
Excellent! Perfect Pasta everytime! Just make sure you don't forget to drain it at your 15 minute mark...I ignored my timer and ended up with limp pasta!
It works!!! How nice not to have to watch it... and have another burner available.
