    My mom taught us this way and when in college I cooked for some friends and did this and one of the guys was so amazed because that is how his Italian grandma did. He didn't think anyone who wasn't Italian would know how to do it. Thanks great tip. (I also do this in my rice cooker with my rice.)

    I had done this for years, and then someone told me that pasta sauce doesn't stick well if you do it this way. I still do it this way, to heck with what I was told. Thanks.

    HEy Bud, how r u? This is a great way to do this, I'm gonna switch to olive oil, or if I don't have any oil, I just butter my pasta before saucing, HIGH FIVE FORKS!!!!

    My grandmother told me years and years ago to "put a little lard (shortening) in there and it won't boil over"... I used to put veg. oil in it, and changed to olive oil a few years ago. It's definately the best way to cook any pasta! Great post.
