Some may call me callous and whatnot but for me, the quickest and simplest way to cook pasta is not in a pot of salted and oiled water when it’s at a rolling boil or whatever it is that everybody says. For me, the microwave oven does the job the best. And this is how I choose to do it.
Put however much pasta you want to eat into a microwave safe container and pour in enough water to cover all the pasta. Set to cook for 10-14 minutes, depending on quantity of pasta and type of microwave.
Perfect pasta every time!
