This was really quick.. and saved some of my time while making the pasta.. As the pasta masala was been cooked i just had to give one stir in between.. And the pastas was perfectly cooked.. without getting too soft or mushy.. In future i would prefer to use this method.. Thank you for this recipe..

Maybe I used the wrong pasta but this did not work for me. I had to cook it for over twice the recommend time and in the end the pasta was gummy. I could have cooked it in a pot in less time with better results. However, if a microwave is your only option this does sort of work.
