We are shifting to a healthier lifestyle here. Oh, who am I fooling? We are cooking some healthier meals but errr we slip a lot. In any case, I pulled out my Jack Sprat cookbook…a lovely retro 1973 cookbook for a healthy heart. There will be more on this later.
Something caught my eye though…the suggestion that 2 cups of pasta should be cooked in two cups of water. Covered. I immediately pictured all the pans that would get thrown out if I did such a thing. I think I will continue to “throw nutrients out with the cooking water” instead of throwing the pot out with burned pasta.
Tell me…do you ever boil pasta in so little water that it is all absorbed at your house?
