Pasta in the Microwave
Learn how to cook any Pasta in the Microwave, so it isn’t dry or soggy and enjoy your homemade pasta dish without fuss. All you need is your favorite pasta, some water, and a microwave-safe bowl, and your microwave will do all the work for you.
In a deep microwave-safe bowl, combine the pasta of choice and tap water. Make sure the pasta is completely covered. Microwave on high for 5 minutes, and then remove carefully and stir. Add some more water if required and continue microwaving on high for 5 minutes more. Stir well and return to the microwave. Heat 1 minute at a time until tender, about 3 minutes. As all microwaves differ, you may need to cook the pasta slightly longer or shorter than stated above.
