Quick Pasta

My stove/oven is not the greatest.  It takes forever to boil a big pot of water to make pasta.  We love pasta in this house and make it quite a bit, so this is a big problem.  Riley and I decided to  try one of those microwave pasta thingys  right off of an infomercial.  I know, risky right?  But for $12 I was willing to give it a whirl.  We ordered the Fasta Pasta Microwave Pasta Cooker through Food Network because it was backed by Guy Fieri.  He wouldn’t steer us wrong, would he?

It has a hole on the top to measure your pasta and lines around the outside to tell you how much water to put in.  You fill it up and pop it in the microwave for about 15 minutes.  When it is done you put the strainer top on and pour out all the water.  It is that easy.  The entire thing is dishwasher safe.

Surprisingly, we love it.  It is fast & easy.  We don’t heat up the kitchen with a big pot of water boiling away and the clean up is even better.  My big pot always took up all of the space in my dishwasher.  Now I just put this little guy on the top rack and all of my plates from dinner fit in the bottom.
