    Default Anyone boiled spaghetti noodle using microwave rice cooker especiallythis style

    http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...ReviewTitleBar
    I have the above " Progressive Microwave Rice and Pasta cooker" - got
    mine for $5.99 at Ross - that I use to make brown basmatic rice
    *using* the rice feature of my microwave. I boiled udon noodle using
    this/...twice, once was with boilign water first. The other time was
    putting both water and noodle together.

    I haven't tried spaghetti noodle. Has anyone tried it to boil
    spaghettic noodle? I plan to try it but I was some feedback to see
    the result (including length of time and effort required) from
    consistent use to decide whether I should buy this one for my brother
    or get "Pasta N' More Microwave Pasta Cooker" (http://www.walmart.com/
    catalog/product.do?product_id=10264354&findingMethod=rr&)

    The goal here is to make it as easy as possible so that my brother
    would make spaghetti since he seems interested when I told him to just
    brown the meat in a frying pan, then add store bought spaghetti sauce
    and let it simmer while boild the spaghetti noodle with this set.
    Also, I plan to make a bunch of egg roll/ spring roll using the
    eggroll wrapper that he can freeze and steam in the microwave. For
    now, he either eats out or buy pre-cooked frozen packages from Trader
    Joe's that he heats up in boiling water. I don't know how much salt
    those package have.

    Any comment on boiling spaghettic noole using microwave rice and paste
    cooker is appreciated.

    I dunno what he's on about, but making spaghetti in the microwave works
    fine--picked up a fasta pasta a while back and find it quite convenient
    up to its capacity limit. I don't know that it's any faster, really,
    than using the stove, but it frees up a burner.

    Now whether a particular brand of microwave rice cooker will do as well
    I have no idea.

    I've been eating a lot of stir-fried vegetables with rice noodles or
    bean curd noodles lately. They look like spaghetti or linguini
    noodles, except they are translucent. I want to try them with Italian
    style dishes because YOU DONT HAVE TO BOIL THEM. Soak them in hot
    water until they kind of get soft and then cook them briefly. Doesn't
    heat the kitchen up so bad in the summer.

    So, you'd soak the noodles while the meat, onions, and spices cook.
    Then add the drained noodles and a little canned sauce, and kind of
    stir-fry it for a minute or two until it's heated through and the
    noodles are cooked. Serve with extra sauce.

    Well, my brother wouldn't be big on shopping the ingredients to make
    that kind of dish. So, I came up with Spaghetti idea since the only
    raw ingredient he'd need to buy is meat unless he wants to add some
    onion, etc. And cooking in microwave idea is more about no cloose
    supersion while cooking it. Beside, spaghetti taste better as left
    over.

    Is there a reason you morphed your name and e-address?

    Your brother is a big boy, he'll figure something out.

    I used linguine-sized rice noodles when I tried it last night. It
    wasn't very good (that also could have been because I used the wrong
    kind of sausage), but I think the procedure has potential.

    It would probably work with real spaghetti noodles, but the soaking
    time would be much longer.

    One of my favorite soups is the same three ingredient concocktion that
    was served in the school lunch room since 1st grade; tomato soup (not
    cream of) with spaghetti and frankfurter coins.
