Ever not want to wait for the water to boil at home to cook pasta? Or maybe wanted to bring pasta to work for lunch? Here is a solution to boiling pasta.

I, in all honesty, was certainly not optimistic that this would actually be successful. I thought how can you actually place pasta in a microwavable dish and toss in there for a few minutes and have it work. My thought was the water wouldn't actually boil. Indeed it did though. Not just that but it took this tortellini and cooked it a perfect al dente.

All that was needed was to cover the pasta with water just a few inches above the pasta, put it in the microwave for 7 minutes and, boom, done.

I would think it may take quite a bit longer to cook a dry pasta. If you want to use spaghetti you may need to double the length.
