Did you know that you can cook pasta in the Anova Precision Oven? This convenient method uses far less water than stovetop boiling, and has no risk of boiling over.
We're cooking the noodles in far less water, so the starch on the outside of the pasta doesn't become as diluted as in traditional boiling. This helps the pasta hold onto sauce, rather than leaving it behind in the bowl.
Pasta cooks by absorbing water. By using full steam in the Oven, plus liquid water in the sheet pan, we create ideal conditions for perfectly cooked, al dente noodles.
