Whipping up a quick pasta meal, especially after school can be a nightmare with kids running around, wanting snacks NOW! So here is a quick tip to get pasta done in 60 seconds + save the saucepan from boiling over and your kitchen from being hotter than a sauna.
Soak your pasta in a saucepan of water for an hour beforehand. When it’s ‘go time’, drain the pasta and before putting it into a boiling saucepan of water for 60 seconds. 60 seconds later and you are good to go with your pasta meal!
Stop your saucepan of pasta from boiling over by laying a wooden spoon over the saucepan when it comes to a boil. I don’t know how, but it works and should stop your nice clean hob from getting messed up.
