The Fasta Pasta: for when 15 minutes is simply too long to wait for dinner to boil. Fasta Pasta

I'm notorious for starting up a pot of alfredo sauce and entirely forgetting to start the pasta until the sauce is ready to go. When that happens, I have to carefully juggle keeping the sauce warm long enough to get the pasta boiling, strained, and onto plates so that dinner can begin. The microwaveable Fasta Pasta promises to make that cook time a little shorter.

To use the Fasta Pasta, you measure your noodles using the various-size holes in the lid of the pasta cooker. You then lay your pasta flat and add water up to the appropriate line. Microwave and strain, using the same holes in the lid of the pasta maker. The Fasta Pasta can be used with spaghetti, fettuccine, macaroni, lasagna noodles, and rotini. You can also use it with rice or soy noodles, and the Fasta Pasta seems adaptable for a few other foods cooked in boiling water.

The Fasta Pasta is dishwasher safe. It seems ideal for locations where your cooking options are limited to a microwave, such as in a college dorm room or on a boat, and is guaranteed not to boil over. The Fasta Pasta is reasonably priced at $12.95.
