Make Sure You Choose The Right Pasta
Typically, pasta is made with eggs, flour, and mashed potatoes…
… which is the case with gnocchi.
A savory white or red sauce goes well with these soft, doughy…
What’s your favorite brand of gnocchi? Or maybe you want to try…
…another brand? OK, I will tell you mine.
Gnocchi made by DeCecco does not disintegrate when placed in boiling water. Toss in boiling water for a few minutes and they’ll be ready in a flash. Yum!
The elliptical shape and width of linguine make it slightly…
…wider than spaghetti but smaller than fettuccine, and it is…
…known as the “little tongue.”
We love it with crispy pancetta and Brussels sprouts…
… but it is traditionally served with seafood or pesto.
Again from DeCecco! Actually, my big family also uses this brand.
As it turned out, the combination worked well for me. The taste of a good pappardelle was very pleasing to me. And the taste of this brand was quite good. Despite its rough texture, the pasta had a nice smooth taste!
It is a long, thin pasta with a hole in the center…
… that looks like spaghetti but is slightly thicker.
As a result, you get a taste of the extra sauce with…
…every bite. Try to cook pasta in the microwave with…
…bucatini! Sounds impressive, right?
Especially when it comes to carbonara, Bucatini is the perfect pasta. This is a great deal!
This pasta has a similar shape to fettuccine, which is long…
There are people who say they are two completely different…
…things but they are in fact the same!
In Rome and Southern Italy, this pasta is called fettuccine…
… whereas Northern Italians call it tagliatelle.
Tagliatelle is a specialty of Italian cuisine that is hard to come by in the United States, right?! But here’s the solution for you..
Does it come as any surprise that pappardelle comes from…
… the Italian word for gobbling, “pappare”?
These pasta ribbons are perfect for serving with meaty ragù sauces…
… as they come in a long, broad shape.
Very nice wide egg noodles. Despite the thicker sauces, they still hold their own! Try it now:
A form of pasta that dates back thousands of years…
…cavatelli is made of eggless dough and shaped into small rolls…
…that looks like hot dog buns.
You can spice up this dish with spicy Italian sausage, which pairs well…
… with broccoli or broccoli rabe.
I’ve bought it several times. Delicious and satisfying. A similar consistency can be found in the product’s quality as well:
Tortellini are ring-shaped pasta that is usually stuffed with…
…cheese or meat.
Tortellini are traditionally served in capon broth…
… which could explain why they make the perfect addition…
…to a variety of soups.
Honestly, this is a great alternative to gluten-free pasta from an Italian restaurant. Make your own sauce, if you can.
Typically, ravioli consists of a thin, egg-based pasta dough…
…enclosing a filling inside.
The ravioli is normally square or circular and stuffed with…
…cheese, meat, or vegetables.
Butternut squash is a key ingredient in one of our favorite recipes.
Here’s my best ravioli to-go!
Macaroni is a dry, tubular-shaped pasta with a variety of…
…shapes and sizes but it is often sliced short.
The most popular macaroni and cheese recipe are made…
…with this versatile pasta shape.
A much more economical way for us to buy pasta, here’s the option:
Usually, I cook pasta in the microwave using fettuccine!
Fettuccine is a long, flat, ribbon-like pasta that’s popular…
…in Roman and Tuscan cuisine.
Due to its thickness, Fettuccine is paired with heavier sauces…
…such as Alfredo sauce.
There was no gluten in this product and it tasted exactly like the pasta that I was used to eating! The best fettuccine I’ve ever had:
Let’s jump right into it!
Now, I want to share a story from Marriot about…
…cook pasta in the microwave! It’s a cool experience.
Let’s Hear Marriot’s Story!
I was at this hotel in Seattle last year.
It’s about 3 AM and I’m still as fresh as the morning dew.
My stomach is rumbling but I can’t go anywhere…
… since I’m new in that town.
So, I check all the foods that I’ve bought for my friend.
I found pasta!
But how do I cook pasta without a stove?
There was a microwave sitting on the pantry.
I was hesitant at first.
I googled how to cook pasta in the microwave.
I didn’t realize until that time how easy and convenient…
… to cook pasta in the microwave.”
Here’s the real deal!
How To Cook Pasta In The Microwave
Prepare it first!
- Microwaveable bowl – a deep one is best as the water will boil up
Time to get the show on the road!
- In a microwave-safe bowl, place the pasta.
- Make sure it’s deep enough to contain the pasta while still leaving room for the water to fill up, and that the pasta is entirely covered.
- Make sure you use cold (tap) water.
- You can also use boiling water, either straight from the kettle or by first boiling it in the microwave.
- Personally, I find it much easier to simply use cold water which has no effect on the flavor or texture.
- Cover the pasta with water until it is completely submerged.
- Set the microwave to high for 3 minutes longer than the pasta package recommends.
- So, if the packet specifies 8 minutes, set the microwave to 11 minutes.
- If you’ve already boiled the water, you can merely cook it for the amount of time specified on the package.
- When the microwave is finished, carefully remove it from the oven and drain the water using a colander.
- Toss with your favorite pasta sauce (which can be heated in the microwave!) and serve.
Lastly, simply break them up to fit into the microwave-safe bowl.
Wait, I have another option for you, this thing is to build for…
…cook pasta in the microwave easier.
The simplicity of this item tickles me to no end, and it’s one of my favorite purchases for my fully-stocked kitchen. Everybody should have one of these!

How Long Does It Take To Cook Pasta In The Microwave?
The amount of time it takes is determined on the pasta package.
Add 3 minutes to the cooking time indicated on the pasta package.
It can take a little longer if you’re making more than one serving.
Just make sure the pasta is done before draining the water…
… just like you would on the stove.
If it requires more cooking time, simply return it to the microwave…
…and check it every minute.
I wouldn’t recommend trying to cook too much pasta at once…
…because it can clump together and not finish cooking.
That’s all there is to it! The experiment is finished.
When you don’t have any other options for cooking pasta…
…this is a nice simple alternative.
It comes to an end!
