No more waiting forever for water to boil.
If you’re making a baked pasta dish, soak your pasta instead of parboiling it…
Simply soak it in salted water for 30 minutes before baking ― no boiling necessary. You can even use this technique when making lasagna to save yourself the hassle of pre-cooking pasta sheets. See how to do it here.
But if you’re not baking your pasta, up the soaking time to one and a half hours…
Then boil it for just 60 seconds for a perfectly al dente texture. See how to do it here.
Or ditch boiling altogether and cook your pasta right in its sauce.
This allows the pasta to absorb as much flavor as possible without having to wait around for a giant pot of water to boil. Try this technique with creamy sauces and you'll never go back to boiling again.
