Who doesn't love pasta , especially when it's all dressed up for dinner today .
I'd like to show you my fast easy , no oil , no salt , nonstick pasta method for microwave users .
The lazy man vegan is all about simple , quick and budget friendly .
My first secret is that I minimize prep time by pre boiling the water .
This Proctor Silas hot pot safely boils 32 ounces of water in just a couple of minutes .
I got it at bed bath and beyond for about $12 with a coupon .
My second secret is to use a corningware or similar 2.5 to 3 quart .
Microwave safe bowl .
My pasta choice .
No surprise here .
Organic gluten free corn rotelle from Mrs Leaper's .
I pour it in the bowl and add boiling water .
My third secret is that stirring .
The pasta is very important when first adding the water and several times during the microwave process .
Now into the microwave uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes , cooking times can easily vary between microwaves .
You'll notice that I did not add oil or salt .
After about one minute , I stir the pasta to keep it from sticking together .
Then I stir it again and a few minutes later , I stir it again when it's done .
I have perfectly cooked al dente pasta that rises above the water .
But I usually test it anyway .
Just to be sure using a potholder or a cooking towel .
I carefully remove the hot bowl and pour the pasta into a colander .
Secret number four is to rinse off the starch completely .
For a tastier pasta experience .
I use hot water to rinse the pasta .
If I'm going to cover it with warm sauce and serve or I use cold water to rinse if I'm going to add ingredients and then microwave into a more elaborate pasta creation .
