So, they make microwavable pastas and they are really good. Bird’s Eye has these veggie pastas that are really good. Perfect to keep on hand for a quick healthy meal.
I did discover though, that you can make any pasta in the microwave. The texture wasn’t my favorite, but maybe I tried to make too much? I don’t know, but it worked and it’s worth having a new trick in your cooking arsenal.
Put your pasta in a microwave-safe bowl and cover it with water. Make sure the water is higher than the pasta by about an inch. Cover with a plate and put a plate underneath in case of spillage. Add 3-4 minutes to the suggested cooking time and microwave. Check for desired doneness. I would suggest cooking by the serving. I did the whole package and it took forever. I think there was just too much pasta.
Then add whatever sauce you want. I love this Autumn Harvest sauce from Trader Joe’s.
