In an effort to reduce energy consumption, put your pot of pasta water up on the stove early in the day. Let it come to room temperature. When it's time to cook, it will take less time to boil.

This tip save energy, time and money.

And don't forget to cover the pot. It will come to a boil much faster!

if you boil your water and add your pasta when the water starts boiling, then take off heat and wait for 15 minutes your pasta will be perfect.....drain and serve with your favorite pasta sauce. of course with the thiner pastas like vermicelli or angle hair you would only steep for 5 minutes....adjust times for altitude please. i got this off the back of a spaghetti package years ago and also was reminded of this on my favorite recipe site.... recipe zaar...

When boiling pasta, bring the water to a full rolling boil in a pan with a tight lid. Then add the pasta and stir. Bring to a full rolling boil again, stir again, and then replace the lid tightly and turn the burner off. The pasta will cook in just a little more time than it would if you kept the burner on. You will eliminate boil-over messes on the stovetop and save energy!
