Pasta Pain De Mie

Well, posting here only because I am using this bread pan...

I use the Pain De Mie pan over two burners on the stove.  Add about 2c water and cook one or two servings of spaghetti. More servings, more water. Bring to boil until the water is absorbed into the pasta.  Usually there is no draining and if needed you can always add water sparingly.  If there is any left over pasta water, add it to your sauce as a thickener.

No more throwing away 6 quarts of water and uses much less cooking time and energy to boil water especially for one or two servings.

You could also bring it to a boil, using it as a steam pan when baking bread in the oven.  Remove the steam pan and finished noodles, rotate the bake,  dine on the pasta while watching the loaf brown.
