There are few things in the kitchen more infuriating than waiting for a pot of water to boil. When you’re stomach’s a-growling, it feels like FOREVER until those little bubbles appear. Then, to add insult to injury, you’re still looking at another 10 minutes of cooking time (at least) until pasta meets your mouth.
Well, not any more.
This genius pasta hack (in the video, above) is so simple you’re going to feel dumb for not thinking of it earlier: Pasta in a pan, people. A PAN. Not only does it cut the cooking time by a significant margin, but it also saves you from having to strain the pasta. Your wrists will thank you when you don’t have to pour a behemoth pot of water into the sink.
Also, each time you use this hack you’re saving at least half a litre of water. So really, you’re also doing your part for Mother Earth. Everybody wins!
Watch the video above to see how it’s done.
