Cooking pasta is one of the easiest things in the book.
Boil water, add pasta, wait, drain pasta and bam, that’s that.
But turns out we might have been doing the straining part wrong the whole time – resulting in way too much splashing of boiling water than necessary.
A tweet has shared a completely different way of draining your pasta before plating up and we’re as shocked as you are.
Good morning to everyone. Just saw this on Facebook and spazzed. pic.twitter.com/YB8qJ2a1g5— Daibella (@Daibellaaa) October 2, 2017
No more trying to balance the strainer in the sink and transferring pasta between pot and strainer too many times.
And people are going bananas over it.
THATS HOW YOURE SUPPOSE TO DO IT?? my dumbass been pouring it into the strainer just to pour it back into the pan after. Wooooooooooow https://t.co/eDD6YEnapQ— Adrian📸 (@woahaydrian) October 3, 2017

Of course you might need to have a collection of different sized strainers at hand to fit a few pots.
And if you’re a rinser of pasta then keep doing it the other way, but this is definitely ideal if you’re whacking together a delicious one-pot creation, especially if you’re supposed to reserve some of the cooking water.
Either way, enjoy the end result.
