The Simple Way To Cook Pasta Faster
No waiting for water to boil. No draining necessary. Ready in minutes.Unsurprisingly, it was under these dire conditions that I chose to transgress one of the cardinal rules of cooking—one that even amateur cooks know: I threw pasta… into water… that wasn’t boiling.
Confession: I could eat this pesto straight out of a bowl with a spoon. But it's even better with pasta, because pasta makes everything better. The classic Italian sauce has always been one of my favorites, and once I discovered how much better it tastes homemade than out of a jar, I've never gone back. The intoxicating smell of basil will draw you in as you make this incredibly easy recipe, and you won't be able to resist licking the spoon.
For quite possibly the quickest and easiest Summer weeknight dinner, get a pot of water going while you make the pesto, cook a pound of the pasta of your choice, and toss with the pesto when it's done. Do your friends and family a favor and share, or save the rest for yourself for a killer leftover lunch or dinner.

I Tried the Viral Red Wine Spaghetti Recipe, and Here's What Happened .
I Tried the Viral Red Wine Spaghetti Recipe, and Here's What HappenedSince both cooking spaghetti in tomato sauce and Martha Stewart's one-pot pasta hack turned out to be total failures, I had to see if the same was true for Food and Wine's spaghetti cooked in red wine. Spoiler alert: it was the opposite. Thousands of people, like me, were intrigued by the publication's recipe video that went viral on Facebook, so I had high hopes that the pasta would taste as delicious as it looked. The verdict is in, and all I can say is this fast and easy dish will no doubt be added to my regular dinner rotation.
