Does your pasta pot boil over???
I am famous for letting my pasta boil over every time I cook pasta (okay, not every time, but about 9 times out of 10!!). For YEARS I have heard about this little trick, but I have never tried it until recently. You bring your water to a boil, add salt and olive oil and then stir in your pasta. Then place a wooden spoon across your pot of pasta and it is supposed to keep it from boiling over.
THIS REALLY WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was shocked when it worked the first time and have still been shocked that it works every time for me!! WOOHOOO!! My stove top is MUCH easier to clean these days. :)
