I know that angel hair pasta sits out of the water for 30 seconds and then it softens enough to get pushed into the water, but these look daunting! I'm sure there is a way to cook them without boiling?
Sent by AllisonEditor: Gosh, Allison — we haven't seen such jumbo pasta yet! Can you give us a tip as to where we can find it? We'd love to try it out!
As far as cooking big pasta goes, we think that the principle always holds true: Just use a really big pot of well-salted water, and coax the pasta into the water as it softens.
Readers, any experience with really big pasta?
