How to Cook Pasta in the Microwave -- Cover pasta with water (about an inch or so above the pasta) in microwavable bowl. Microwave on high 10 min. (stir half way thru). If not done, you can microwave it a couple more min. When done, strain and use as desired. Simple, quicker than on the stovetop, and no pots to wash. :-)
