my favorite way now to cook dry pasta especially when I want it done quickly. Works great.
Not long ago, returning from vacation arriving home around 8:00 p.m. we were hungry but wanted something quick and fairly light. With this cold start method I had a pasta dish (that included an on-the-fly treatment of sautéed onion and garlic, frozen peas, a sausage pulled from the freezer, a few snips of fresh garden herbs, and grated Parmesan to finish) on the table in about 12 minutes.
