I don't like cooking pasta. It's not because I don't like pasta, that's a horrible lie. I could eat the stuff with just butter and die a very happy carb-filled man.
I don't cook regularly cook pasta because I will put myself into an early grave. But in the rare instances I do cook it, apparently, I've been going about it very, very wrong.
Because I've been using a colander incorrectly by pouring my spaghetti into the colander itself. This is wrong. Because apparently you're supposed to use a colander as demonstrated below.
That's right, your pasta is now in its original pot, where it belongs, so you can season and maybe mix around with sauce and other accoutrements to your heart's content. You can thank Doug Hagler for sharing this revolutionary knowledge, as many people on Twitter already have.
Doug's post really changed the game.
But other people weren't buying it.
I dunno, this some Illuminati shit. Tryna make me but more strainers to contribute to capitalism. I don't think so, sirs and ma'ams.— King Picou-BOO 🎃👻 (@KingTashaun) October 3, 2017
Pots come in different sizes. Y'all gonna buy a one-size fits all strainer orrrr...? stop letting the internet think for you, shit is scary— SpookDaddy (@ImDPL) October 3, 2017
It also looks more dangerous doing it the other way. I feel like i would burn myself trying to do it the wrong way— 🌴SageDaHerb🛩 (@spicy_sage) October 3, 2017
Is this all just a clever ruse to get people to buy more pasta strainers that fit our specific pots and pans?
okay but not all of them are going to perfectly fit like that— Bex Davis (@bexpressionss) October 3, 2017
Which straining method are you going to stick with?
