Saw this on Face Book and had to give it a try. One of the things I dislike about making pasta is the boiling and straining - well, with this you may stir but no need to strain. It all cooks in one pot. as the starch leeches out of the pasta it makes the sauce. I have to admit I do add some extra spices for our own tastes, but have listed here just as it was posted, so as to that - make your own decision.
