This video shows an interesting and different way to cook your spaghetti that requires only a frying pan – and far less water than you’d expect.
First you start with your pasta and cold water in a pan:
Then you just let the water boil, and soon enough you’ll have a good pan-full of pasta.
Reactions on social media have been mixed. This technique seems to have annoyed quite a few “pasta purists.”
“Disgusting and unacceptable. This is an absolutely wrong way to cook the pasta. Disgusting for what you obtain and unhealthy because of all you loose in nutrition and digestion with this way of cooking”
Some Italians might not like this method:
“Every time you cook pasta like this an Italian dies”
Other commenters found method to be too “American.”
“you can see the layer of slime over it when he pulls it out. starch has nowhere to go but back on the pasta. i was waiting for the oil and salt in the water but i guess it’ll be substituted afterward with some ketchup and a can of pabst blue ribbon.”
