Cooking Pasta With Microwave Cookware

Almost every home today has a microwave oven and some kind of microwave cookware that they use to cook with. When preparing some foods I prefer the microwave it saves time and when its done it comes out as good as if you prepared the conventional way like on the stove top or in a traditional oven. Things like steaming vegetables, steaming clams or mussels, and making baked potatoes. Recently I started cooking pasta in the microwave.

When I first heard about this method of preparing pasta I was a little leery about the whole idea. I am not one to jump at every kitchen gadget that is out there but I recently came across a microwave pasta cooker and decided to try this new way of cooking pasta.

Well I was quite surprised at the end results after using this microwave pasta cooker. Not only could I not tell the difference in the way the pasta tasted but it actually took less time to cook. When using this method for cooking pasta the whole cooking process took only 15 minutes from beginning to end.

There is no need to bring a big pot of water to boil and then adding your pasta. The traditional way of making pasta on the stove could take anywhere from 30 to 40 minutes, start to finish.

After having very good results with this microwave cooking method I basically see this as the preferred way of making all my pasta dishes. So if you feel like trying a new method of cooking your pasta dishes try this method and I think you will be quite suprised at the end result.
